History Don't know much about it. I bought it early summer 2011 from ostensibly the second owner. He just wanted enough money to make the downpayment on a larger bike (he was around 400lbs!). He had bought it from someone who just had it sitting in the garage. It had 6661 miles when I got it.
Bodywork (Body panels, skins, Plastics, windshields, etc.)
Added home made luggage rack and saddle bag supports. Previous owner added an engine guard/bar along with highway pegs. They were not correct parts and were just rigged in place. I'll be cutting and welding the bar to make cleaner attachment points.

Completely rebuilt the bike this past winter. Blacked out bike, new pipes and header wrap, new seat, new sissy back, luggage rack, etc.
