couldnt agree more!!!
but, 87 model 150 elite's are easier to do custom paint jobs on.
which after 13 years outside, yours probably needs.
I know that this is an old post, but how are you guys only getting 58 MPH out of your Elites? A properly running Elite 150 should do 65 MPH. I can hit 70 MPH or so on GPS with my Elite with the wind at my back on a long, flat highway stretch. The OP should also check his CDI, and maybe everyone should consider checking their electrical system thats only getting 55-58 MPH.
