It's a 1992. I found it in the paper a few years ago, and when I went to look at it, the guy said, "Hang on, I'll go *inside* and get it." He kept it inside his house. He owned it since it was new, so its been taken care of. He bought the Targa full lower fairing, and had it installed at the dealer in '92. I took it off for the winter (easier to work on), and have not put it back on yet. I kinda like the look without it. I've got a buddy that has a brand new EX, and mine is just as good, IMO. Harder to buy good tires, for it, maybe.
Thanks guys. The PO had those stainless steel can covers put on to cover scratches. They make the mufflers look like the newer chromed models. The grab rail was stripped and polished, and I like the look. All in all, not a bad deal for $1,700 a few years ago.
I have had a lot of fun on this guy.
I can see the appeal for bigger, faster bikes, but when I'm out riding, I've never wished I was on anything else. It has given me the chance to do some of my own work too. I mounted two new tires, adjusted the valves, changed a bearing in the rear wheel, and several other minor projects.
