I am sure that there is something I forgot. Point is that the bike has had a lot of time and money spent to make it into a reliable daily rider.
Has never left me on the side of the road.
Starts on the first or second kick.

Has a few period parts
Dunstall fairing. Not in the best shape. Can see some poorly done repairs.
Dunstall pipes, sound great!
Rearsets, I think they are also Dunstall, but not sure.
Dunstall clip ons

Bike is NOT perfect by any means. The next owner will have to decide if they will keep it as the great rider that it is, or tear it down to do a full cosmetics restoration.
To me they are only original once....

Cases have a nice polished finish on them.

Bike is a "ten footer". Once you start looking you will find imperfections in the paint, rust or just signs of age/use.
I would rather scare off a buyer that doesn't know older bikes then have someone be disappointed.

Horn, speedo and tach are in-op.
Speedo and tach have new cables, have not dug into why these are not working.
Horn I assume is a bad unit as the wiring is new.

Bike has a clear title in my name and is currently on the road and used regularly.
Asking $7500 but open to offers.
