The bad stuff.
The bike has no horn or turn signals, so please check local registration laws. The speedo fuel gauge flashes empty as there is no sending unit to provide a level signal.There are a few marks here and there (fork tube, battery tray from key chain)Starter one-way will need to be replaced somewhere down the lineKickstart arm hits right foot peg about half stroke, but is functionalBike does smoke a bit at start-up due to no exhaust valve seals (see description below)There is a small crack in the engine case at the bottom of the points compartment (please see photos in listing)
The 1st full service will be completed before the bike leaves my possession.
I put a LOT of hard work into this bike and have tried to include everything I can think of. I will update the listing with anything else I think of. Please understand this is not only a custom build but also a classic (old) carbureted bike, so if you are not familiar with some of those quirks, this may not be the ride for you. This engine requires regular maintenance/service.
I will be riding this bike until time of sale as it is a really fun ride!This bike is also for sale locally, so auction may end at any time. If you have any questions please ask before bidding as all sales are final. Shipping or pickup is the responsibility of the winning bidder.
