If price and condition are good, go for it. My wife rides a 98 583
deluxe, and it's a very cushy trail cruiser, much softer than my MXZ.
Not afraid to approach triple digits either. If steering isn't precise
enough, get rid of the pcs "wishbones" on the ski bottoms. It may dart
more, but steers much better without them if you ride aggressively.
