    Scored a new to me upper fairing off ebay and swapped it out last night, that's it for fixing all the left side damage from the PO.

    Not bad for 3 weeks time, I think I've decided to keep it. :-)

    Damn Dude, that's the best looking $1,500 slash five that I've seen in a long time. What's the scoop, and do you want to make a quick hundred bucks? :lol3

    LOL, yeah this is another one that found ME. I wish I had space, I'd keep it. But it's up for sale on evil bay now. (Sorry for the shameless plug). lol.

    Wow! You stole that classic Airhead for $1500! If I saw that I'd have bought it too, even though I have three BMWs already.

    I really like those bikes. Be careful of the aluminum wheels. For any off road riding, look for TTR225 or TTR230 wheels which are steel and a straight swap. It's a popular upgrade with the XT owners.

    Is there a forum spec'd for the XT? I know there's a good thread here but everything is all jumbled up in there.

    I thought it was a good deal. I only have 2 airheads but want another. It makes no sense at all, but I can't help myself.
    I guess there is no antidote. The other brands of bike have no appeal.

    That seems like a very good score. Congrats.

    Great time to be buying 80's bikes; especially in decent - mostly decent condition.

    And there are plenty of terrific 80's bikes that are still fun to ride with little compromise.

    Still needs some things but with only 5K miles, it’s worth the time and a few bucks.
