They came with every factory accessory available in 1970 except a side hack. Thru the 70ís they were used in every major event and parade including the Rose parade. In 1979, they were auctioned off. I have been the 4th owner for over 14 years. I t has had a full mechanical restoration by myself with the best of everything being used while doing my best to keep an original look. The bike was ridden daily for many years and has been take cross country numerous times. Presently itís capable of going anywhere but is really only ridden when I get the notion. For sure, Itís one of those things I plan on dying with.
Exhaust tips look sharp!
Always mindful of obstruction, do your duty, never fail;
Keep your hand upon the throttle, and your eye upon the rail.
