Yamaha Heritage Classic?

Some years ago, I owned what I thought was a 1982 Yamaha Heritage Classic, which had a 650cc engine and was an absolutely beautiful bike. It was really heavy for its size, and was the perfect height for my 5’6″ frame. I got rid of it a LONG time ago, but recently started thinking about getting another motorcycle. When I Google “Yamaha Heritage Classic,” I get results for “Yamaha Heritage Special” instead. I’m not sure if I’m mis-remembering the name of the motorcycle I owned, or if it’s just a rare beast and my Google-fu simple isn’t strong enough. The Heritage Special looks quite a bit like my old bike, but it’s hard to say because the seat had been replaced on mine with something completely different from stock long before I owned it. I’ll be keeping an eye out, for either. If any of my readers run across a reasonably priced one within a few hours driving distance of central Ohio, let me know…
