I think I paid $125 or so for my smaller one. I also got the quick disconnect as my idea is to simply use this one battery on most of my vintage bikes, rather than having all my battery tenders running all the time...

Thats not a bad idea if I could move it bike-to-bike, even for the larger one. Thanks Killfile.

Progress has been slow, Ill post a few new photos tomorrow.

Thanks guys.
According to my parts book they're `77 B model forks, so the `72 sliders won't work.

I just picked this up from a co worker for 800 bucks. It's been sitting for 20 years. The resto is in full swing. Cannot wait to see yours finished.

I recently saw a pair of these and stopped to look and get a price, guy wanted a grand one was frozen and the better of the two was rough but had potential. What your doing is looking good if any of you are interested i'll see if the gent has them still, my pocket book was slim when i looked at them and my project list was long at the time. Looking forward to the progress and the sound!
