It's a 1983 I got it through a series of trades and deals that kind of goes like this. -A couple of summers ago I leant a helping hand to a marina for a week and got a Sea-Raider jet boat with a blown motor in trade of my services. -I traded the jet boat as is for $300 cash, a Gibson Les Paul, a Hyburn electric bass, a mint Ibonez RG and a couple of amps. -I then traded the Gibson Les Paul and the bass for a 1989 polaris 250 trail boss. -I traded the trail boss for 2 V65 Honda Magnas, an '83 and a '84. -I sold the '83 Magna for $1,500 cash. -I took $800 of that cash and picked up an '82 XT200 -Traded the XT200 for an early 70's terra jet. -Traded the terra jet for an '86 Virago 1100 -And finally... traded the Virago for this bike.
