All new except the frame paint which was so nice I decided not to repaint it. As you can see by the front forks, footpegs and rear brake pedal, it was in fairly good shape for a 34 year old bike.
I never felt so worthless as when I owned my 1976 360 Husky and my riding buddy had a 370 Pursang, both bikes which had seen better days, and we were pretty evenly matched, and he bought a brand new 400 Magnum just like that one. I couldn't keep him in sight on a track.
