History
Unknown, but I could tell it had been hit on the left side. Some parts were replaced. By the looks of it, it had sat in someones back yard for a long time, the seat and other comfort features were weather checked and torn.
Bought it for $1500, from someone who brought it back from the dead. LOL

Modifications

Drivetrain
Stock mags with the front tire 100 90 19, instead of 110 90 19.

After hardtail mod i am going to go wider in the rear.
Interior
Some one modified the exhaust, with glass packs from the local auto store.
I cut em off about 3/4 the way back, and pulled out the stuffing.
Looking for a cam solution, want something more radical.
Exterior
I removed all cruiser stuff :D
Cut rear fender, added tombstone taillight
modified a mustang seat, and installed it.
threw away the stock handle bars (they were bent anyway). Installed 4 inch dogbones and dragbars.
Audio
Front forks basically stock except for repacking, and polishing.
Increased Front Air to 30 psi.
Completely disassembled the rear shocks leaving only the chrome shock and the mounting ends.
Lowering the rear to fill the ugly void between the rear tire and the rear fender. Just enough clearance.
Swapped out the running boards for foot pegs.
I removed the tach and guage assembly, the tach cable was broken,left it off.
Mounted the gauges and lights under the hood, had to do some cutting and drilling, not the best job, but turned out ok.
working on a hardtail mod. to the stock frame, install a single frame tube down the center on top for gas tank.
Need 6 inch overlength front tubes, to make it look just right. ;)
