Bought this 83 shadow 750 and I do like it. Lots of horsepower. I'm usually not heavy into the throttle so I get between 50 and 60 mpg which I believe is great for a 750. What I don't care for is it feels kind of short. I feel somewhat cramped in the riding position, especially on longer rides.Maybe I need to look for a way to put highway pegs on it. The guy I bought it from replaced the old rusted pipes with pipes of a HD Sportster and I don't think I care for the sound. I really like the power and smoothness of the honda 4 cylinders but I'm thinking I would be giving up a lot when it comes to MPG.

I got good mpg with my cb650 and other honda/yamaha 4cyl bikes. I'd keep the shadow though. You can have someone fab up a bracket that will extend your stock controls forward on yours which would give you more room. I'm 6'3" and feel crammed on every bike.
