    Thanks for all the post guys! It really really rides smooth! Just put the bars on it, Axle Plates, Cables cleaned, chrome timing cover, diamond plate grips. I dont think I will change much about it. Just need to get all the chrome cleaned where the previous owner let it sit and rust in some places. Mainly behind bolts and nuts where its hard to get to it. Ill probably replace a lot of the bolts that have rusted a bit. Gonna be fun tinkering with it getting it just the way I want it. Its a 1998 and got 18000 miles on it. I think i got a steal for 9800. What you guys think?

    Take care!
