I bought this as a non running bike last year with the plan to make it a good running, good riding, good looking bike. Success! Over the winter I went through every part of the bike. The transmission was professionally rebuilt with new bearings and re-shimmed because of water leaking in at the speedometer cable. All wheel, swing arm and steering head bearings were checked and cleaned/lubed. (All were in very good shape) New battery and tires installed. Wheels cleaned and polished. Paint is in very good shape. Electrical system repaired (bad relay and clutch switch) and now functions properly. New plugs, points and condenser installed. Cylinders measured by a professional and found to be near perfect. Heads cleaned of carbon and valves lapped. No valve deformation found. Timing chain and sprockets inspected showing no visible wear. Tachometer drive seal replaced because of a leak and cam and crank seal replaced “because I was in there”. Valves adjusted at time of putting everything together and again after riding the bike 500 miles. Heads re-torqued at that time also. New rear main seal and oil pump o-ring installed. Actual mileage is unknown because the odometer was broken when previous owner bought the bike 12 years ago. I repaired the odometer and it now functions properly. I set the numbers at 01000 when repaired. Pictures show the bike with and without the fairing – currently without. Bike is available either way. This bike rides very well. Starts easily and is comfortable at slow or interstate speeds. Now I am ready for a new project.
