Thanks, how do they figure in the big scheme of things?
Good, Bad, or do you keep well clear

Thy aren't much different mechanically from an early Ambassador. Carbs may be different (remote float bowl?) on early V700s, and some parts are unique, like the valve covers and battery covers. Otherwise it's a loop. They are collectable!

They are pretty little bikes....wheelbase slightly shorter than the other Loops via a different fork tree...smaller gas tank really makes them seem smaller when sitting on it....spokes wouldn't be stainless...a few other differences that I can't think of right now...

I thought they had reduced trail via more offset in the tripleclamp (good for sidecars). the fork tubes being further out and the contact patch being further out makes for a longer wheelbase.
