I bought my 1983, about two weeks ago with ~67,000 miles (now ~68,000 miles). serial number: 620-7642...So, it appears to be 3/1983. So far, it looks like we've gotten a bunch of 1983s...any 82s or 84s out there??

Bad coil, bad turn signal relay, old battery, clutch cable, front break pads (all replaced). Just had some service done (all fluids changed, and Valves adjustment), and it's getting better every day...everything seem to be OK for now, but my mechanic(s) warning me about the tranny/ final drive rebuild job comming up soon. "time to save up some money (about $800-$1000)", one guy said. And that he's never seen an airhead without a tranny rebuild over 100K miles... The other mechanic told me that it would cost me at least ~ $2000 "to fix this bike right..."
I'm a little bid worry...but for now, it seems to run fine.

Cheers,
