1981-on have the updated starter motor/solenoid unit. Late 1984, and 1985 have the alternator

By the looks of those rotors it will need more! Looks like it hasn't run in at least a couple of years.

Also the owner knows nothing about this bike as an 82 does not have an alternator.

Red flag for a possible scammer. And No plate is not a good sign.

It might be worth $1500 if it will jump start and the oil is clean.

On the plus side, the 'FTW' '666' rocker box engraving is already done!
