Time to get rid of one of my bikes…
I picked this bike up a few years ago in California. I got it as a 1972 fastback with a 68-69 engine. The previous owner wanted it to look like a late 60’s so that’s what it looks like at first glance. It has no signals/horn/highbeam or the handlebar switch but the wiring is there for them. I just sent the head out to have the exhaust ports milled and bronze sleeves installed and threaded(No more stripped exhaust threads!) While it was off i installed a new head gasket and new alloy pushrods. Yes, it leaks oil. Not bad, but it happens. Its got a mikuni carb that powers it just fine. I ride this bike EVERY day. If you’re looking for a numbers matching, perfect motorcycle, this isn’t it. This bike is built to be ridden, not hidden away in a garage. I bought this knowing it was modified, and i continued to modify it and make it my own. Bike comes with a big plastic tub of the original fastback parts.
Things iv done:
Installed NEW steel roadster tank (old tank was fiberglass and leaking/cracked)Cafe SeatGrab RailRewired itReplaced the old boyer ignition with newer oneReplaced clutchReplaced rotorReplaced statorReplaced regulator/rectifierRemote oil filter installed
