My 98 VS1400 when she was still sitting at the PO's house. This was the picture he used on cycletrader.com when I first saw her:

Here she is a few months back. Still looks the same today. My future plans with it only include new handlebars, and possibly, if my budget allows, some new wheels. I'd love to be able to run tubeless. I have considered painting her because the original paint looks a little poor up close and there is a dent in the tank on the visible side in this picture. Other than that, I don't have plans to do too much to it. Well, that's not true. Maybe a new seat and a windshield.

Keith, it is a Honda Phantom (Shadow) TA 200 around 14 HP good for 100 mpg maxes out at a little over 70 mph quite happy to do 60 all day long. I have had it for about 6 years from new, abused the crap out of it, it got drowned in the flood to the extent that the tank was full of flood water, that was a couple of years ago, she is still going strong. All I have done is changed the oil, chain and brake pads, oh! and a new front tyre.
A great machine for kicking about locally and small shopping trips.
I don't think they made it to America but were quite popular in Australia. Discontinued line but has quite a following.

Its not my job to prove myself every time I state facts. Its YOUR job to look it up and find out what I say is true.

Thanks. I couldn't ride far without it. That lower back support really helps!

Yup, and it's easy on/off if you want to go on a short ride without it. I need mine for longer rides.
