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.
