Summary:

A little-big baby

Faults:

Definitely the cables: Clutch, speedometer, tachometer. Now are fine.

Suspension has to be fixed.

General Comments:

I bought this little-big baby 2 years ago. And I love it. Smooth ride, enough power, low gas consumption, 6-speed transmission, great sound, automatic signal lights. Wow, a lot of gadgets for that small piece of art of 1986.

This little baby was found in a backyard with rust, no tires, and many loose parts. With love and patience, the 454 is my joy and my pride. And it looks great!

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
