all are great bikes, the 88-90 have a different rear wheel and final drive, but that can be overcome by installing a rear end from a triked 1500. The later Gl1500s have weaker alternators, but that can be overcome by installing a compu fire. The 93 would be a safe bet, no issues

i've owned a 98 aspencade and today i own a 94 interstate. the 94 gets way better gas milage, faster..........but they are both great bikes.

The '98 will have the beefed up Valkyrie transmission parts which is a worth while improvement. The '88 has several parts that aren't interchangeable with later 1500s. the '93 was the first year with roller bearings in the rockers which made them a bit quieter. If I had the choice and the price wasn't too much different I'd go with the '98 with the '93 as my second choice if there was a serious price difference. I'll be surprised ifyou keep your '82 for long after getting a 1500.
