I have owned this for about 10 years and have spent thousands on it, but hardly ever rode it. It's time it went to someone who appreciates it.
Fully reconditioned engine (including top end and crank seals etc) by Boyle Moyorcycles last year, about $2k spent. Runs like a dream
All new bushes etc, frame has been painted, electrics converted from 6v to 12v, new fork oil and seals, fully reconditioned carb with new seals and jets. Tons of spares including new cables and brake shoes.
Generally in great condition for its age.
Paint is chipped a bit in spots but not major
Rev Guage doesn't read below 3k
Oil light stays on (even though it has plenty of 2 stroke oil)
Seat has some tears
Big issue is I haven't rode it, so it's been sitting around and now the clutch is stuck. Shop told me to run it down a big hill and dump it into gear to free the clutch plates, but I'm not willing to do that.
