Looks XT for sure, but not in any other colour scheme i have seen.. the Pin stripe being the odd character.. the stripes generally run straight down the tank from the top to create a colour stripe down the centre. The later models were silver (Post 80 - 81 IIRC) but still maintained a stripe.. i would suggest late XT... i would also suggest Ebay.. straight tanks are worth $$$$

Yes.

But the really sad thing is that I only window shop...

Although I have had the winning bid on a bike for the last week...

Unfortunately the bike is in Vic and I have no way of transporting it here at the moment...
