Welcome from Indianapolis. Nice bike, looks like pretty much everything is there. It would be nice to start out with something like that.

The photo flatters it, the starter motor is missing, the air boxes are missing has some after market filters and the head has a couple of fins broken off. But she runs and I rode her home from where I picked her up. Should be fun getting this back and shiny and tracking bits down.

Quick update on the restoration. Rolling chassis 95% done, engine stripped but in poor shape.

Loads of debris in the sump? and oil filter clogged with fillings ?

Already have New barrels, pistons, cam chain and tensioner, reground camshaft, new cam end covers, clutch and will need to replace oil pump, little ends, cut new valve seats, oh yes and a bit of welding on a couple of internals.
Now need to source crank end bearings ?
Enjoying every expensive minute ?
