There is no part of this bike that has not been lovingly restored. Better than new (in my opinion) with only 7700 original miles, the title is clean, registered and insured in California until 2021 and now ready for a new home. I have ridden this a few times to work and back and receive so many fist bumps and thumbs up along the way. Fun. We intended to get this to a few shows this summer, but Covid has squashed that opportunity.

This project began in 2019 and just finished in June of 2020. I was still working fulltime until Jan 2020. Now semi-retired, I was able to focus on this project. There is so much to see, and a full list of mods/new parts for all you fellow bike nerds.

This is not a half a conversion or a few mods. This is a complete café conversion. See before and after pics. It’s time for me to move on and start the next one – a GS 550. Serious inquiries please.
