Since brit bikes costs are through the roof now a days, my brother was thinking about picking one up. I've always been told their good bikes and are a more efficient brit bike so to speak. Found an 81 and a mid 70's. Both are running good. But what years are the more desirable and why?

74-84 are all pretty well the same. 80 and newer come with electronic ignition. The xs1 and xs2 are a little different as far as actual engine internals and lack of electric starter on some years.

They're all pretty desireable. If you can get them both for a descent price, grab 'em both.
