1982 Yamaha 1100 midnight special info needed

Any body know anything about these pigs. Got a line on one and not much shows up on searches. We're they available in limited numbers or what? I have seen some reference to numbering on them, but nothing concrete.

From How Stuff Works:
With just 250 built for 1980 and another 250 in 1981, they are rare commodities today.

Are you sure it's a 82?

I am not that familiar with yamahas. Can't believe they were that low production. Edit, I called the dude and it is a 1980 which makes sense.

All the Elevens were hard on second and third gears. Other than that they were solid and surprisingly fast. The midnight treatment was purely cosmetic.

Never mind. It was a POS with a price tag that was on the stupid side.
