    nice.... little extra chrome on the fork legs and clocks, and loud mufflers too. I bet that was a fun bike.

    If my neighbor had one of those, I'd immediately start building a hot JD Harley, with a front brake and Norton gearbox.

    Thanks, Old Mule. All those years ago I had no idea the clocks and forks weren't stock. I knew the mufflers were aftermarket, and it ran nicely without too much noise. A very satisfying motorcycle with excellent power characteristics, supple forks and sweet handling manners.

    Youth and nice motorcycles are wasted on the young...
