I wanted to thank everyone for pointing out the recalls.
I checked and mine hadn't been done (Didn't think it would have)
The dealer has the parts on order and I'll have them do the 600 mile service when I bring it in for the recalls. i'll have 600 miles on her by them easily.
I have now doubled the mileage I got it with and am very impressed with the S-Wing. Its quite a bike, very civilized and refined. I could rack up lots of miles very easily.

Glad you got things sorted, now enjoy the ride!


OT: That has to be a 1961 LeSabre? Do you collect or are you a fan?
I always joke with friends that I am not old enough to own a Buick yet! Been a Caddy guy for a long time now and a GM guy seems like forever.

Darned close. '61 Invicta.
You know, that's almost happening with the super scooters, they are getting the reputation of being "old people's bikes"
Funny thing is I've been into Buick since I was a kid.
I've had some Cadillacs as well. I still have a '76 Sedan Deville that I'll take out every now and again.

Am I showing my lack of age if I thought an Invicta was a watch brand? scratch

From '38 to '58 the four big Buicks were Special, Century, Super and Roadmaster.
Special was the family sized Buick
Century was the same body with the more powerful engine (could make and hold 100 mph , the "century mark")
Super was a larger car with some nice appointments
Roadmaster was the larger car with top of the line appointments
In '59 they changed the names
Special became LeSabre
Century became Invicta (A LeSabre body with Electra engine and some up scale trim)
Super became Electra
Roadmaster became Electra 225.
'61 saw the Special name came back as a small Buick and the Skylark name as an up trim Special.
'61 was the last year of the separate Electra/Electra 225
In '63 the Invicta name was changed to Wildcat
For the early '70s Wildcat became Centurion.

The Invicta nameplate was only used from '59 to 63 and had not yet been reintroduced. (although there was talk of bringing th name back)


Sorry about that, I get talking Buick and I ramble.
