No, its not a street bike like a lot of you have but it is my first bike that I inherited from my grandpa. It hasnt been ridden in 24 years so the carbs need cleaned and synched and the tank needs to have the rust removed from the inside and be resealed. Other than a new battery and a brake bleed it should be ready to ride. The only problem is, I have no idea how to ride it :rotfl:. I don't even know how to get the damn thing started! I assume you open the petcock to allow fuel to the carbs but then I see a switch on the carbs says "open" so I dont know what to do with that. Then there is a switch on the handlebars that says "Run" or "Off". I guess I'll learn, the owners manual got wet and all of the pages are stuck together so that is no help.




World's biggest front ferring FTMFW!

That's awesome, it's like CHiPS style.

Loosing the bags and front fairing would make it look like a regular street figher, except a bit long.

Now thats a unique first bike. WOW! Sure beats a 250cc. Just be careful as its probably a lot heavier...

Yea, heavy as hell!:rotfl: My friend and I were unloading it out of my truck and when I loosened the tie down it fell on him. Was a bitch to get it off of him.
