About to buy this runner, anything catch your eyes?

The guy says the tank is perfect inside but it hasn't been ridden in years so while it does run, it needs a carb cleaning, battery, tires etc... Not much of a project.

Aside from fender, signals and brake lines, do you guys notice anything non original? Or anything to suggest this bike is a basketcase?



What the hell are all those red lines? Including one that goes to the bottom of the left fork?












Is Hindle a decent exhaust? Or obnoxiously loud?

It was a frankenbike. Nothing wrong with that but I'm too much of a close-to-original weenie. Still not bad for $1750.

That was worth the 5 hour drive still (nea my family in ON). Nothing ventured nothing gained.

Re: About to buy this runner, anything catch your eyes?

did you buy it? I went to see this pike when it was originally posted for 2500.

The fairing has been spray painted where its been down (silver triangles) and the pipes are not for that bike. they were cut and welded (poorly) to the stock header.

i was looking for something ready to ride at the time, so passed since it didn't start well, needed a battery, lack of bum pad, pipes, and i was not interested in dicking with the carbs.

good buy for 1750 though. I would have paid that.

I had noticed too many oddities like the ignition key didn't open the gas tank, the plastics looked clean despite the rashed / broken clutch lever and bar end..... things that indicated a frankenbike. So no, I drove all the way from Montreal expecting to come home with my first oiler but left empty-handed.

And they were loud AF, which meant (for me) that I'd be searching for a stock exhaust $$$

Absolutely. I'm a little surprised it hasn't been snapped-up by any of the numerous oiler guys in S. Ontario. They're becoming more and more scarce - I know since I scan classifieds all the time.
