Can tell it's not an 88 or earlier, those had Hitachi starters. HD used Denso starters from 89 on.Recently a 1989 Softail followed me home, and I just had to keep her. The previous owner bought her new at Dudley Perkins in San Francisco in 1988, and put every possible upgrade on her over the years. He was not a rider though, and the bike only has about 20K miles. I can live with that.
I got lucky with this bke, I learned of it through word-of-mouth, friend-to-friend. I went over to see the bike, talked to the previous owner for an hour, he fired it up. I didn't even test ride the bike, didn't haggle over price, I just asked him how he wanted payment.
