I believe mine is a 97, and they had gone aluminium at that point. Pretty stiff slash harsh rear end, but because of that it's rather composed with a heavy rear load.
I debated using it for my last trips, but in the end realized I would change so much, so I just went the troll route, and the rh is now my winter commuter.
