As said original is only original once most rusty parts can be re chromed and refinished if neccesary and the paint looks good,stock originals are getting scarcer every day.

If anybody was curious to what happened to this bike, I had it sitting around as a basket case for 3 years. Decided it was time to put it back together and leave it alone. Put a new wiring harness in...had several melted wires for wear and age. Should run tomorrow. Carb is clean, have good compression and spark...time to add fuel.

Moved under its own power. Need to rebuild the front caliper yet and I have a primary gasket leak. Also need to find an era correct lower profile seat. Hate this this seat if anyone wants it for a good price!!
