There's no reason why an AVL shouldn't see you through many miles.

Mods worth looking at are:
TCI Update (this should take some pressure off the sprag clutch)
PAV / Exhaust (this will improve the performance a little)
Rear Brake (this will take the spring out of the rear brake)
Oil Breather (this should prevent the collection of non-edible mayonaise)
REgards

Back from vacation..trying to decide whether I want to buy a bike sight unseen..It does say Electra on the side covers if that makes a difference in specifications.

Electra has disc front brake and a slightly different frame than the old Iron Barrel models.
The "AVL Classic" had drum front brake.

I contacted the dealer and will know more tomorrow...Ace, what is your opinion of the blueing on the head pipe? Or am I just being too critical?

The bluing on the pipe is some of the worst that I have ever seen.
It is in dire need of a proper tune up.
It is unlikely that it was seriously damaged internally in just 142 miles, even with bad enough tuning to blue the pipe like that.  But, it should be tuned correctly right away.

 Thanks, Ace. I really wonder if I'm being a PITA but I don't want, nor can afford a bad purchase. Thanks to all on the forum who have been patient with my questions. :)

I just found the pic shown below for $2500 with 900 miles. Again, quite far away.. I may just say the heck with it and get it shipped.

That's it...I already let one get away..this one is still there at an attractive price. Who can recommend a reliable shipping firm for bikes. I can't take it anymore!! I need an Enfield!

Don't forget that there are Iron Barrel models out there too.

That's your ticket.
Nice late model with a 5 speed gearbox. Good year.

Agree with Ace. Not a bad price. Have it checked out and buy it. A lot more Improvement and custom stuff out there for the Iron barrel than the Avl.   ERC
