    It's a 2001 special edition. The 1150 was sold up until introduction of 1200 [hex head] in 2005. There was a special edition in 2006 as well. After 2002, the 1150 came with the servo linked brakes.

    All that suspension won't help, much. There's a hinge in the middle of the bike. AMHIK.

    any comments on how ugly of an undertaking this is to fix? I mean the bike is probably a $3K-ish bike at best anyway.
    I've read about the rear main seal some, how it can leak after sitting, etc. - This thing has averaged about 600 miles a yr for 22 yrs! :-)

    I kind of like it, It has an old school look and someone actually built it instead of hacking up a stock xs with a sawzall. Alot of old wrecked Triumphs, BSA etc ended up the same way.
