Decent entry-level cruzer
Seat vinyl was trashed.
Carburetors needed a thorough cleaning.
Air intake connectors were cracked.
XJ clutch springs (5) tend to weaken from age - easy and cheap to replace.
This is a great-looking and plush-riding cruzer. Not at all a speedster, as the acceleration sucks, and it is too low and wide for tight turns.
Mine had squishy wide foot rests with bumper studs on the bottom - very cool (after I got over the initial shock of scraping one on a seemingly shallow turn).
If you stick to bike's intended purpose, then it is very enjoyable.
Very low-maintenance after I fixed everything. Extra points for maintenance-free ignition.
Most parts are no longer available (like air tubes), so you better have the sources lined up before purchasing one.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
