Fast and great looking old lady
Bought from a workshop where it was being partially restored.
The speed and revs meters were missing, but were given to me with the bike, broken. Obviously, no speedmeter cable, the same as choke cable.
Battery fiber glass cover cracked and partially restored with fiber glass inside, pins are missing.
Saddle beginning to crack.
Oil leak from one of the suspension bars.
Rusty exhaust from sitting under the trees before.
One of the cylinders was giving trouble lately, and was allowing fuel into the spark plug.
The whole electric system is a mess.
The bike is great, it accelerates almost with the thought, and is very easy to handle for its size and weight. It does need a lot of work to be done, but there's where I'm lucky that my uncle is an old mechanic who keeps pieces "just in case", and he had almost all the pieces the bike needs.
It was love at first sight I'd say, and I'm planning to keep her for as long as I can.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
