ive got an 82. other than buying some roundslides cause i ef'd up the originals, its been a good ride. gave it a cheap paint job after fixing some dents in the tank. gets alot of compliments at the harley bars which surprised the heck out of me. what are they asking for it? i saw and 81 in town with a parts bike included for 1000 bucks but it was not ''cherry'' but only had 8000 miles on it.
Here's my '83 HS. Not completely stock. I changed the bars/mirrors and had the seat shaved down. K&N filters and Commando exhaust. It's a very nice, comfortable ride. By '83, Yamaha had gotten all the kinks out and upgraded the XS for nearly 20 years. If you can get a deal on it, grab it.
markmoody: i am not sure what he was talking about when he said they dont know what they are doing. but i can tell you this about two years ago i had them build up a Yamaha 750 they bead blasted it, bored it out and i could not have been happier with their work.

preston: Very hard to navigate , hard to open links, can not find new items, even when it says "NEW" on the left sidebar . On the old site ... i liked the "new threads" all on one page, and cant seem to find that feature here . preston
