Know nothing about the chain of ownership. Purchased 'as is' non-starting 4/2013 to strip for parts to sell on eBay. Sat for 16 months under shelter due to situations beyond my control. Finally had time to take a better look at it. Got it started in Oct 2014 and decided to work on it to make it road worthy. Started work on it July 2015. Wiring in head light repaired which was all messed up. Replaced bulb, 2 front blinkers with after markets, added 2 LED light strips under headlight between forks. Pulled both front calipers, overhauled them, new pads, rear brake, overhauled both MCs for brake & clutch & slave cylinder for clutch & bleed / flushed out all hydraulic lines. Replaced oil filter, engine oil, gear oil. Replaced INOP radiator fan from 1500cc Nomad and rewired it. Pulled carbs apart. Yet to do: Compression check, synchronize carbs, fuel & air filter, correct rough acceleration between 1K to 2K (might have a bad coil?).
