Hi,
I've reduced this from $2,500 to $1500. It's located in Northampton, MA 01062
PM me please! My history below. One of you guys will want this!
323844



I bought this back in 2011. I've put 15,000 miles on it. Selling because I bought a newer model.

I recently rebuilt the carb but it needs some adjustment. Other than that it is a smooth ride. Needs some TLC.
I have not ridden it very much for a few years so some things may need attention.
Comes with the front brake covers, new timing belts (that should be installed even though the manual says servicing not needed), rear dress light bar, assorted brake and engine seals. Needs shifter seal replacement but comes with a new one. Has spare final drive but nothing is wrong with the one on the bike. Loads of luggage space. You can do your grocery shopping with it and have room left over.

Front wheel covers come with it as does a rear light bar.

If not there PM me and I'll hook you up with the photos.
This text is what's on CL.
Plenty of rubber and no imbalance in the tires.
Run flat on the rear. Front stabilizer.

Has trailer hitch, ready to go.

This is a fun bike to customize and it rides very smoothly. Some TLC should keep this running for years.
