This is a great bike! I have owned it since 1985; i knew both other owners personally (rip). She's just coming out of some rework, she's running fabulously, and it's killing me to sell her. But i live in another state now. She is currently registered through april of 2018. Good stuff first: she has brand new (and i mean brand new) front and rear brakes (and fluid), battery and plugs. The tires have a few years on them, but less than 1,000 miles and almost new rubber. She has a higher, more aerodynamic windscreen, which works wonderfully, and new, larger rear mirrors. The front fork springs are upgraded and the oil is fresh. The points, voltage regulator and generator brushes are also less than 1,000 miles old. The carburetors were "just" tuned and synched. I have confirmed that the unique "snowflake" wheels are the later, strengthened version. Brembo rear disc brake; front brakes are ate. Although a drop of "something" will appear once in a while under the bike, there really aren't any leaks. The rear end is tight and dry. Other than good stuff: i dropped the bike one friggin' time! (. This was the cause of the most recent rework. So the fairings have been replaced, repainted and solid (there are no "repaired" cracks), the right valve cover is scuffed underneath, and one of the battery covers has a crack (sorry - i just ran out of time to replace it/them). The fuel tank has one gentle dent (not related to the drop) that's barely visible in the left side photo. I was afraid to try and pop it out for fear of making it worse, but i guess a pro could do it in 10 minutes. The rear brake could use another bleeding, but to honest, if i could keep her longer, i'd install a new master cylinder. The mufflers are in fine shape, but the right one has some pitting. That said, kbb says the bike should go for around $5k. This bike is definitely in the "good condition" zone (and there may be some wiggle room for negotiation. It's only a few hundred dollars away from being one of those $10k bikes. I've been brutally honest here, and the price i'm listing it at should be reasonably in the "sane" ballpark. The bike will be advertised in other venues as well. First fish on the hook, gets to keep the bait.
