There are 29864 miles on this bike since it left the factory in ’74 but just 149 miles since rebuild/restoration. This may increase slightly as I may take it for a ride or two before auction end.
This motorcycle will be sold on Clean/Clear Arizona title in my name.
Pictured also are manuals and such which are included.
There is nothing that needs repaired; the bike is ready to ride and/or show as is. The hand grips are a bit worn and could be replaced, new owner can replace them with grips of choice. The current grips have a good feel to me; that’s why I haven’t replaced them.
