Welcome to the mad house. 550 is like a very slightly smaller 750 but weighs about a ton less and that is a huge advantage. Stock they don't make a huge amount of power but despite popular opinion, even the older models can be persuaded to make a lot more power without self destructing. Starter clutches are a bit of a worry, but other than that they are neat old bikes.

Don't let Alan know I said this, but fit a modern electronic ignition and solid state Regulator/rectifier plus relays for ignition and headlight circuits and you should have a lot of fun with it.
