93? They made those then? I dunno man.
Well congrats anyway.
If it smokes alot, look forward to replacing the turbo, unless you can find someone to replace the oil seals in yours.
Good news is that most of the mechanical parts are the same as the 650 Maxim. Bad news is that hardly any of those parts ever break.
Either way, you now have a fun and unique bike= enjoy it.

I think you will find you just won an '83 turbo. IIRC they were built in '83 and '84. Don't forget to see if the "boost kit" was installed. This will give it 12 psi maximum boost, and allow you to bring the front wheel off the ground with the throttle in third gear!
I know, I used to own one, and I STILL HAVE the FACTORY service manual for it!
Great bike, just doesn't like to turn quite as quick as some.
Yes, we DO want pictures!!

Hey Scott,

I was going to fix your photo links, but you went back and deleted your photos on photodump!?!?

What you did was copy the WHOLE PAGE URL link, instead of just the photo URL! Once you upload your photo, right click on the photo and click PROPERTIES, and then highlight/copy the URL you see...should have a *.jpg at the end! Then paste it here, and the photos should show!
T.C.
