Mileage

Unknown how many miles on rebuild assembly. Believed to be less than 2,000 miles.

Paint

Paint: This is an older restoration repaint. Minimal scratches and good sheen but there are strong areas where the paint has flaked off; spots noted on front fender,under the left side tank, and around the filler neck.

Sheet Metal

Sheet metal is in excellent condition and well fit. Appears to be all original sheet metal except for the front fender. Close examination reveals that the front fender is a fiberglass fender, possibly from the batch made up by Bob Stark in the 70’s. PRICE DISCOUNTED BECAUSE OF THE FRONT FENDER. The gas tanks have been previously lined with cream and currently show no signs of leaking.

Chrome

Chrome is in great shape and takes a good polishing.

Mechanical

This motorcycle is in good mechanical condition. It has less than 2,000 miles in the power plant since the rebuild. Nothing is known of the builder. The engine starts easy, sounds good, and runs very smooth through the gears.
Bad gas left in the carb means that it needs to be cleaned
