This little gem has a freshly powder coated frame and swinger but, it was missing a few parts when acquired from an estate sale for next to nothing.

The owner gave it to me today saying it had an engine knock, he is severely mistaken, there is no knock and the engine is tight as a whale's ass. (Whale's ass is water proof šŸ¤£)
It is missing the air filters and the carbs need to be synchronized but, she's a great little runner other than that so far.

That looks like a great project Ray. I'm constantly amazed at the machines people give to you, that would normally be put on craigslist asking top dollar. Good luck with it.

It was only given to me so I could charge him money when I'm done working on it. Wink

The owner dropped off some new air filters on Monday evening which made a huge difference in how she runs and he also left me the fairing that was on the bike when he bought it from the estate sale.

This fiberglass fairing was made for the 450 but, the windscreen is no longer a part of this world.

I think I'm gonna have my buddy paint it, it is still in good condition and is pretty unique so I'm sure there is someone that will want it.
