looks like it would be at home at a star wars convention. especially with a storm trooper on it.

I rode one many moons ago, I remember it being very smooth and well balanced, didn't have a ton of power but seemed like it'd be very comfortable on a long ride.

Guy I worked with had one since brand new in '89. Loves the damn thing wont sell it for anything. Standard maintenance and tires is all he has ever had to do with it. Has enough space for a six pack and ice as told by him. I thought it was pretty cool never got to ride it though.

I was at S-K Services bike swap meet 2 years ago and one went on the auction block. Absolutely beautiful pearl white one with matching painted fiberglass trailer.....I almost bid on it. It had 214,000.00 miles on it.

That'll work........

It's going pretty slow though..

I did go to allpro and look at their specimen. It is a nice bike. Uber cushy seat, HUGE trunk. pretty nice shape, for a plastic-wagon. great price. but if I rash it, I'm screwed. I decided something newer would be a better bet. And the niner just zipped right along at 5 grand over the weekend. *shrug*
