    Starts, runs, rides. all electrics work, clutch, gearbox, brakes, etc, all excellent. a little carb roughness but that can be resolved.
    second owner now 90 years old, turned it over to his son about ten years ago. retired commercial passenger pilot, he went through it and rode a bit, then went on to a modern steed.

    That must be only 18 000 miles since those OEM mufflers look like new. They also worth far bit of cash since most have rotted away. A few years ago a 76 gl1000 with 23 000 proven miles on it went for 20 grand.

    This video popped up in my tube thread this morning - thought you might like it, though the middle section goes a bit long:

    ^ It's great to see owners taking such pride in their bikes and maintaining these classics - such a variety, too. :thumbup



    Let's see ... I'll try the Jota for a bit. :D (Oops! I think I got that wrong ... let's say the Laverda. ;-) ).

    Sweet! What kind of shape? It's been pretty easy to work on, although I haven't really gotten into the engine. It was sitting in a dudes carport for 6 years with a blanket over it, and I paid way too much for a non runner lol. I am a sucker for old unrestored bikes. Still not running the way I want it to, and leaks some oil.

    70 Thunderbolt. Both bikes were bought during my son's little league games. Maybe I should leave my phone at home during football season....
