History I bought this bike for $500 because the previous owner could not get the link brakes bled and didn't want to deal with them any more. I took it home and my wife stated "I can't believe you spent $500 on this Rust Bucket."

When I was finished with most of the work of getting it back into running condition, my wife came home and saw it sitting in the driveway and stated "I can't believe you only paid $500 for that bike."

Oh, and the brakes bled without any problems! So $500 for a bike with 59,000 miles on it. Let the fun begin!

It was in pretty rough shape when I first brought it home. I cleaned off a LOT of rust, removed a few rat nests and even a nest inside the turn signal case then I removed the secondary air system from the carb and changed all the fluids and it operates and runs great!
