This is a “runner,” and being sold “as is” with no warrantee on engine or drive train. Been in dry storage since last run in 2006. Engine turns over. Plenty of nice chrome. Likely needs a top end job and TLC. Engine and frame numbers do not match. Current owner has owned it since 1986, titled in 1987, and again in 2009 when original title was misplaced.

MILEAGE: 15,000 +, but doubt if that is original

PAINT: Custom, some chips off front fender and wheel paint


CHROME: Front and rear fender tips, kick starter, brake rods, seat rail, front crash bar, air cleaner cover, generator cover, handlebars, seat rail.

MECHANICAL: It has not been apart since acquired in 1986, when it was purchased with a reportedly fresh top end, maybe 10,000 miles driven since 1986.

Rims are 16 inch
Front tire is 5.00-16 Armstrong
Rear tire is MT90-16 white wall
