It's an old bike, so a minor oil leak or two, also diff casing is a bit scruffy. I have a spare diff, which has been polished, but not sure of the condition.

General Comments:

This bike was completely rebuilt from two bikes, and restored to complete concours condition.

It turns heads where ever I go, and I have even had comments from car drivers at traffic lights.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
