80 Ironhead, When I bought it the speedo was screaming and the needle was bouncing all over the place until it finally died. There was 25,000 on the clock for three months.

06 12k,I didn't get nearly the amount of miles in during my junior year as i did in my sophomore year, because i had to commute before. I plan on making up for it over the next three weeks before school starts.
