wow, very straight original machine. Original pipes and even the original nitto tires. Keep those tires, not to ride on but keep them and/or sell. Some guys who just want a museum piece would love to have them. I still have mine. You can't get proper white walls for these bikes any more. Basically have to make your own with portawalls. Don't look right without whitewalls though.

Hopefully the pipes are not rusted out, just surface rust. The do make some SS replacements but not true to original form. She's a beut though. I get mine out often for vintage rides. I've had it up to 70mph but it gets pretty scary up there what with the marginal brakes, crappy suspension, and the motor is really spinning at that speed, but it will dust off a Royal Enfield :)
