Bob,
Welcome and I don't know the first thing about a 450 LXI, but there are a lot of guys out here that do. They will fill you in. From what I've heard, they are a great rig. Hope all works out well for you. It's amazing how many Birds are showing up in Ohio. There is a rally just north of you in Wilmington this week. No 450s that I know of but a lot of nice birds and even greater people.

if your looking at a coach that was modified near the end of the recallls you will have a good coach
the recalls were a continual work in progress
Call Allen Barbee at Bluebird and give him the Body number or VIN
He is usually pretty helpful

Bob:

Where are you going to look at it? Someone on this forum might already know this bird, and be able to give you some information or previous information, or even have seen or looked at it in the past.

Or, they might even know of the previous owner, and can possibly give you some update information to help you in your pursuit.

Bob,
I just bought a 2007, had some problems, but none that can not be fixed. I love the Bird. Rides great.
