I know they are a dying breed but they are a blast to ride! I just got all new plastics on mine thanks to my neighbors insurance. He accidentally backed into it and knocked it over. ( was nice enough to get everything in motion for me though). A very forgiving bike too....

My neighbor Rick has one that is immaculate. He is retired and used to ride it every Sunday through the forest (he said that was his "Sunday worship").

Though it is rare that I see him ride it these days.

Black Birds were great all around bikes...Especially after they went to fuel injection in 99'. They just needed a bit more power to pull the weight...

ATS had turbo kits out for them in the early 2000s... That would have made it the ideal sport touring bike....
