History
3rd owner, purchased with 1,300 miles in excellent condition. There was some damage to the front fender due to a previous owner strapping a milk crate to it to transport goods (fool). The baffles were also previously removed, the carbs seem to have been rejetted. I have zero issues with popping or throttle response.

Interior
Uh… it’s a bike…
Exterior
- Sanded down the front fender and bondo’d the dents.
- Painted 4 coats on all body panels and most covers using high temp engine enamel (flat black), applied 3” strip of 3M 2080 Satin Vampire Red vinyl to both fenders and tank followed by 4 coats of matte clear UV and chemical resistant on all pieces.
- Painted top engine covers, muffles, and heat shields with 4 coats of High temp engine enamel (flat black).
- Replaced headlight with DOT approved 80w 5.75” LED projection headlight, most stock components did not match up so I needed to affix the headlight to the front ring and mount run to the headlight housing, plug and play.
- Replaced all turn signals with LED bullet signals which required LED flasher. I built a diode splitter but couldn’t get it to work so I just pulled the indicator bulb and the turn signals work now with no problem.
- Side mount license bracket and tail light combo. I cut out the OEM bracket using a grinder with a cutting wheel and sanding flapper to shave down what I couldn’t cut.
- TJ Brutal Customs 7” Z bars which give the same approximate height as OEM (I just hated the look of the stock bars and I’m more accustomed to drag bars).
- New black Levers and master cylinder.
- New Avon grips
- New mini fork bag for registration/insurance/etc.
