I recently picked up an 86 ZL600-A1 Eliminator with 23K...it is my first bike but I've ridden a sportster 883 prior for a while. I'm 5'11, 190 lbs and the bike fits like a glove. I've researched many bikes but found this one to be an excellent compromise between a Sport bike like an Ninja 600R and a cruiser like a Vulcan 750. I couldn't decide which bike style to start on as I love both styles, so this is just perfect. It is a very RARE bike and I've received many looks on it. I find this bike to have excellent power, it's a blast to rip through the gears, and it handles well. The sound from the two bazooka sized exhausts is sweet at 5000+ RPM. The look is all power cruiser, sort of like a mini V-MAX.

This bike is fast, period. Although it is my first "street" bike (I've owned numerous dual-sports and dirtbikes) so I can't compare it too much with many others. My friends' 94/99 750 Magnas always give it a good run. This is a fun bike and is a rocket. Looking to upgrade to a sportbike now because I feel I've outgrown this one. Handlebars are kinda narrow and feel weird but nothing anyone can't handle.

More power than I thought but it gets uncomfortable on the long rides, I took it to lacuna w/out changing the fluids a day after buying it and it had sat for a year, I had no problems save for one overheat.
