For now, welcome 95sporty1200...from cold and generally overcast Pittsburgh, PA USA.

They all
Thanks for the great welcome!
Here are some photos, plus questions

- the front rt lower engine mount plate has a fairly large diameter threaded hole. What is this for? Forward controls?

- between the jugs is the hole for timing/crank position... It's got a plug there. If stripped, what are some repair options?

Thanks!

Edit: forgot about the attachments. Will reply back when I get that figured out.

Wow, those are awesome write ups! Thanks!

Here is the image album. Bike photo below. I'm finishing up another bike and will hopefully focus a little more on this one next.
