Why would you hesitate to tell us? The 87/88 Magnas have been generally regarded as very well designed bike.

Here are some pics. I still don't know the model.




At 65 this thing is just going to trotting mode.

The magna just felt a bit over the top. There are a few of them to pic from here in the area.

The Magna you listed is of course Honda's 2nd-generation Magna. The sharply-raked exhaust pipes are sexy, but this configuration obviously makes saddlebags almost (or completely) impossible.

Not many of these Magnas were made, and Honda worked out the camshaft bearing oil pressure problems of the earlier Magnas on this model, so its engine is a more reliable design compared to its predecessors.

It may be that one day these 2nd-gen Magnas are collectibles. I think that some parts for these bikes may be getting (or are already) difficult to find, too.

Anyway, I think your choice of the Shadow Sabre was a much more practical choice, compared to the other options.

Niterider, there is nothing wrong with that bike AT ALL!
Except, maybe, that it's yours and not mine. :(
