That thing is a work of art. Love the color and that polished rear. And don't change that seat.

Yeah I got it out. Motor barely had 16,000 miles on it when it let go. Was pretty bummed, but gave me an excuse to do the engine so it's cool.

Wow, thank you. I'm gonna keep the seat haha, I cant imagine the bike with a regular seat on it. But thank you, I've never had anyone call one of my projects art before! First time for everything.

Oil spitting out the transmission vent tube due to a failing main seal. Plus the main bearings seem to be going out as well. In the shop to replace them and decided to replace the cases after carnage from the chain tensioner self destructing several years ago. Never sounded right after that and most likely the reason the bearings and seal are going out.

Damn! Is the case ruined or just needing seals?
