85 ascot ft500 help, please???

can anyone tell me about this bike, I can't find any real info on it, all I know is its a v-twin with a 6-speed. what else is there to know, is it air or water cooled, shaft or chains. is it a naked bike, or a cruiser? any info would be great thanks. if its a good bike I may go see it tomorrow.

Air-coolled I think, shaft drive. Pretty bullet-proof. Good first choice.

are they quick bikes, I want something that can move out of its own way. I've seen a few on the net that were made into race bikes, wouldn't the shaft-drive interfear with that. it seems I just can't get away from shaft drives in my price rance, oh well I might as well go and see it anyway. how do they handle? is it a big bike, I'm 6'3'' and 225lbs so I don't want a ninja 250 sized bike. what kind of gas milage does it get. oh and this is not my first bike. thanks for responding so fast to
