Here you go. Yeah, it needs rearsets to go with the clip-ons...


And the bike next to it...

thanks
yeah
she needs rears
and if you flog her on twisties she need also a fork brace...
anyway
gorgeous bike indeed

p.s. i suppose she is a show bike... since she had no O2 sensors

beautiful even the bike close to her... but only she... is able IMO to make scratch the head at supersporsts riders on my mountains!
some young japs hypersports pilots haven't figured out yet.... how... and in what way... even a stock 883 delivers the power and especially the torque...

Hey guys, new here.

Thanks for posting this. That is one great classic. It sounds like it's gone? That's a bike that many of us would ride today with great pride.
