    This has been a one owner bike that is currently set up for short person, it hasn't been modified other than a lowered seat, long handlebars that reach toward the rider, and risers that also hold the windscreen. Can easily be converted back for taller person. Nice, original condition.

    Both electric and kick start!

    The bike has just been completely gone through, here's what was done:
    1. Carbs sonically cleaned and rebuilt
    2. Petcocks sonically cleaned and rebuilt
    3. Front brake master cylinder sonically cleaned and rebuilt
    4. Front brake caliper sonically cleaned and rebuilt with new pads and braided steel brake line
    5. Fresh oils in crankcase, transmission, drive shaft, and final drive
    6. New tires and tubes
    7. New oil filter, spark plugs, and air filter
    8. Tank was cleaned and sealed
    9. New maintenance free gel battery
    10. New oil pan gasket

    Yes, I have the side covers, they are not installed in the photos. Left side engine badge will be reinstalled before sale. It includes the original tool kit with under-seat box, both racks for panniers/side cases (I do not have the side cases), a nice rear rack (as seen in photos), and high quality windscreen (as seen in photos). The odometer reads 64,XXX miles.

    It runs beautifully! Located in Mesa, AZ. Price is $5,400.

    So just how much did you end up lowering the seat height with the seat mods? Stock for that model and year was 31.9".

    I just measured it and I guess it's not much lower, it's barely over 31". It had the rear shock levers turned on the lowest setting so it dropped nicely when you sit on it.
