    When I started riding in 1980 that was the coolest bike ever in my eyes...

    Thanks. The P.O. had it as more of a cafe. Low clubman bars, chopped rear fender, front fender removed, chain guard removed, rear axle mounted license plate and tail light, custom cafe seat, pod filters, etc.

    Said it ran fine but didn’t like to go above 60mph. He was fine with it as he just cruised back roads as a stress reliever.

    I sourced all the missing parts to put the engine/ fuel/ air system back to stock. Cleaned/ rebuilt the carbs with new carb kits. Put Moto GP bars on it. Starter was acting up, so I pulled it and plugged the starter hole. Kick only now.

    Runs great with stock air boxes and filters. 85-90 mph without too much effort. I mostly cruise country back roads myself, but I know it’s running right now. 55-65 @ 5k rpm and it’s money all day!!!!

    Thanks

    Moto GP from 4into1. Cheap enough too. ~ $20ish

    Much more comfortable than the clubman bars that were on there.

    Dang... You are right.. I couldn't discern a front disc, but it's most likely a 75 wit those Bings. My bad.
