Cool. Friend of mine had a '81 xs 650 he kept running like a pony.
I'm a Dyna guy myself...could live on a Wide Glide...but have a sweet spot for Sportsters since forever. My newest toy is a XL 1200N black-on-black; minor mods, two up etc. A friend of mine called me beginning of this year to tell me to come see something new. She called it a Nightster, said it was the first one delivered to SC. I took one look and wrote her a check. Next mods are an open airbox then a set of loud pipes...maybe some good 'ol panty-droppers....lol Anyway, almost too much fun to be legal
XD45 for $400 is a square deal, I say. I think you'll have that peice a long time. One of my coworkers picked his up in March and lately it's the only one he brings out to shoot.
Never say die!
