Since I finished both Yamaha choppers last year I have been looking for another project to sink my teeth into. Found this bike, a trade in at my local bikeshop and made a quick decision. This was going to be my next project. Great Engine, Wide tire kit, and some other quality goodies I liked. Did ride it for a little while, not a great success. Oil was pouring from the gearbox and the electrical stuff was real crap. Rain shower resistance was absolute zero. Not that important tough, its all fixable stuff and I will strip the bike anyway. I did love the power of the engine.
