Original condition german bike. Brand spankin new rear tire, relatively new front tire. Gauges need new needles, but work otherwise. Needs side covers (battery covers) Couple scratches on the tank (presumably from the fly on pants). Paint is good otherwise, BLACK. Needs nothing to ride, needs carb adjustment/cleaning to start easily... but starts every time as is. Brand new battery, no major rust, brand new pipes ($300). I bought this thinking I wanted a vintage bike for a daily rider, I was wrong. It hasn't been registered since '98 in California. Clean california title. Great bike. Everything works electrically, hi low beam. Crack in headlight lens, but still shines perfectly. Perfect bike to restore with minimal work.

I am firm on the price.
