    Nice job. That's a great engine starter issues or not.

    This is my 77 GS750 I am building it right now. I just rode it down from western North Carolina to Leeds Alabama to Barber for the vintage days. this past weekend. Hopefully I can keep moving forward with it, and come up with a good set up with the shocks and mirrors I picked up at the swap meet.[​IMG]

    Okay, I'm glad that I'm not the only one who was distracted by the front fender. Other than that it's super-sweet!

    In England there were rules governing what constituted a 'moped' vs a m/bike - at 16 you could ride a 50cc moped but not a motorbike ...a moped was defined by having to have pedals! They could lock in place as footrests but could also turn and start the engine as I understand (many mopeds were modded, as looks like this one, to be little boy pocket rockets) Many manufacturers made bikes with pedals for this market and without for others, In SA for example we did not have this Pommie law and could have a 50cc bike with pegs but only progress to above 50cc at 18. Now 'kids' can ride 125cc at 16!

    Is that a Drum Brake rear wheel that has been converted to disk?

    kind of looks like it, huh? i think it is. if you zoom in on the rear you can see through the disc and into the empty drum. i'll check if i see it again.

    I'm not sure I saw this bike in this thread, but do you guys know where to get this seat/cowl combo to fit a '92 Monoshock?
