Alright haters, as i said this bike was a junkyard find, so......imagine the condition of sitting outside for more than five years in Texas sun with half a tank of gas in it. At least if you could call what was in the tank gas. Now that it runs, after the carbs, brakes, forks seals, brake line, re-wire due to mice living under the seat, (....you get the idea the shape it was in) bonding the cracked fairings that were left from the crash it was in five years ago. I finally had time to remove the from fairing mount to put a fork mounted headlight, clean up the wiring a little and put a paint job on it. By no means is it done, I plan to strip the bike down to the frame next year and go from there. So here it is as i put some miles on it cuz it is fun to ride. So...with that said, i have thick skin so .....


by the way my harley friends don't say anything, cuz i'm lead bike. :)
