When you find the color you like, you have found the best year model. Honestly. After '08 there are some cosmetic filler panels on the lower part of the bike and somewhere around '10 they stopped making non-ABS bikes.

The '04 in SuperFastBallisticBlue is the best but the rest of them are still great.

Yep. Just pick the colour scheme, mileage and service history you like and you'll be good to go. It's all cosmetic. The bike is well known as being extremely reliable and well built. I personally, as do many others on this forum, recommend you buy an ABS model. Here in the UK non-ABS models were only available for the first year or so back in 2002/2003.

Hello 74,

I think that the best color is the original silver of the 2003 ST1300.

And, it just so happens that I will be putting mine up for sale for $5550 ($4550 if you do not want the PureForge brake system) in the next week or so.

;-)



It is loaded with extras, really too many to list here from memory. I'll have to go create a list.

If you are interested, send me an email (jzulaski@hotmail.com) and we can work out how to get it to you (i.e., delivered, shipped, or you pick up).

Regards,

Here is a complete list of the add-on "Farkles":

2003 ST1300 ABS Good Condition

$5550 with PureForge brakes/$4550 with stock brakes (http://pureforge.com/brake-systems/motorcycle/)

PureForge brake rotors increase the friction coefficient which greatly reduces your stopping distance. They're absolutely amazing. I'm the only civilian who has a set. They were only sold to Police departments until just recently.



A little under 64,000 miles

  • HID Bi-Xenon Hi/Lo Headlight conversion ($300)
  • Hondaline Mirror and Fairing deflectors ($300)
  • Russell Day-Long driver/passenger all-leather seats ($850)
  • Hondaline Trunk ($500)
  • Hondaline Spoiler ($300)
  • Aeroflow Headlight cover ($80)
  • Hondaline Tank side pads
  • Hondaline Tank end pad ($50)

  • Honda ST1300 Service Manual ($75)
  • Evans NPGR Lifelong Waterless coolant ($75)
  • Turbo City Exhaust Wrap ($50)
  • Roy Fletcher Sliders ($230)

Not included but, we might be able to negotiate something:
