Hey, if the bike 'speaks to you,' then buy it. From the photo it looks pretty nice, even has rear suspension and you sure won't see one parked on every corner. I run synthetic oil in mine, check the valves religiously (every 2k miles), run an oil cooler (Iron Heads weren't called "Waffle Irons" for nothing). Clutch pull is pretty heavy. Judging by the size of the rear pulley, she should be pretty quick out of the hole.
Mine started as a stock `83 XLX and I paid $1950.00 for her in `86. I've rebuilt or changed pretty much Everything and she's been a Cafe style ride since `87. If you need any advice or tech info I can probably help out.
