My first real street bike was a 74 CB750 that I resurrected after sitting for nearly 20 years. After about three years I sold it and bought an 82 V45 that I got for a steal at $550. Three years later I had a guy offer me $1700 for it. I had been considering upgrading to a third generation Magna, so I took the money. About two weeks later I found the 94 that I only paid $2700 for. I could sell it today for $3500.
These bikes are fantastic. Not perfect, but you won't find a better combination of power, handling, reliability, and looks in another bike.
I'm quite short at 5'5" and the low seat height is great. Taller riders complain about the ergonomics and often switch to forward controls. The seat is a little too soft for long rides, but still better than my 82, and better than most. The Corbin seats are fantastic (they feel hard at first but don't let that fool you) but pricey. The stock Corbin's also push me too far back to reach the bars comfortably. However if you really want a Corbin and are willing to go to the expense, I hear you can go to the factory in California and they will custom fit a seat for you.
My yellow Magna gets lots of comments from other riders. In spite of what my wife said after I brought it home, even guys are impressed by the color (nobody knocks Corvette Yellow, do they!). The only addition I've made is adding a small Hondaline sport windshield. Something slightly larger would do better preventing my head from being buffeted above about 60 mph.
These bikes are well built, as trouble-free as you'll find, and require little maintenance. I consistently get 45 mpg around town. I would buy another in a heartbeat.
