I wonder if the 84 in the serial number indicates the build date?

Your guess is as good as mine Gary..its a nice cruiser mate ...and very stylish from the period..i have started releasing the chrome from its bronze overcoat..and mate let me tell you ..it has a deep lustre to it..im quite impressed..and the chainy is so flash..the chrome again is deep in its visual mirror...so i dont know who did the original chrome on this..but it aint cheap..theres no flaking anywhere...so deep dipped or quality electroplated..i will see if i can get some pics up with the proprietary photo uploaders available..thanks for the response..rgds Kev.

There's nothing better than good chrome plating and nothing worse and more frustrating than a poor chrome plating job. It sounds like your bike is quite a stunner and it will be nice to see the photos.
