I bought my first T-Bird in \´95. Put on nearly 60,000 miles. Sold it and got an \´04 Sport. Nice bike but I missed the classic look of the standard. Sold it after 20,000 miles, and then got an\´02 T-Bird standard. Had it for 3 yrs. put on another 20,000, and sold it to get a boat. %!¤, what a mistake!
I\´m now getting a \´97 T-Bird with 9000 miles on it. I\´m concerned that the \´02 I had may have had lots of upgrades (i.e. brakes, sprag clutch, rear shock?) and that I may find the \´97 lacking. Yet I\´ve heard some guys say \´97&\´98 were great years, and that later yrs. the quality deteriorated. What to believe? I\´m looking for a King/Queen seat.
Appreciate any feedback.
