Summary:

28 year old masterpiece

Faults:

So far the only things to go are the battery and cables. And the front shocks leak slightly, but they are air filled, so all you have to do is pump air in to them via a compressor or bike pump.

General Comments:

This bike has all the power you need, and has a great ride, but can get a little uncomfortable on long rides.

I love this bike; it's stylish and untimely. It shifts a bit rough, but at 28 years old it's not bad.

Summary:

I love this bike and intend to keep it for a very long time

Faults:

Oil leaks from breathers and valve cover.

Front fork seals are leaking.

General Comments:

Bike gets uncomfortable on longer rides, but previous owner replaced the bars with straight Z bars and the seat with a Harley Davidson Sportster seat.

The bike is extremely fast for the style of bike and its age.

The bike handles like a sport bike, but loves to just go cruising as well.
