What a relief - I thought it was you. Great looking, nothing like a naked 'Wing. I'd keep that one even if I was unable to ride, it's just such a great looking bike. My neighbor has a beautiful '78 in his garage. I've often told him if he has a fire I'll save his bike then think about getting him out.

That sounds like a really good trade, that Ltd. is a beauty.:claps:

Did you get the bits that aren't on it, in a box of bits, or are you needing to source those separately?

And now you are telling us you got an 1100 in the deal too!!!! Unbelieveable. :shock:

it had been bagged, and I got those, matching painted Vetter fairing and bags. no grab rail but I have one. original front signals and mounts in the boxes, and scads of other pieces, like the shields, more chrome, etc. Since it now is basically free to me, having traded for it, I will never sell it. what I will do is mount every piece of chrome I can find anywhere from that time frame onto it. I am putting a set of 1100 carbs on it until I get the originals done right. and yeah its that nice. I am a happy camper.

No!!!!! Please don't smother that beauty in chrome bling, she is like a beautiful woman, she doesn't need accessories to tart her up. :praying:;)

If you must throw chrome at something, do it to the standard 1100. :)

You're just a thief.

Beautiful bike, and somewhat rare. IMO it would be a shame to change it form stock, but it's your bike. Just PLEASE don't cut it up. That is NOT bobber material.

I would not ever consider any thing but stock with maybe some chrome. I have a rolling light show already. I promise everyone here will approve of everything I do.

A Scott Squirrel and a Ariel Red Hunter are what I would keep stock. Perfectly stock.
...and a Munch of any kind.
Everything else is a gamble, so good luck. If you stray, don't worry. You won't let me down. :)

Well I just oiled and rolled both bikes. jumper cables and WD40. Both engines haven't a tick in them, and tremendous compression. :raspberry:
they sound like new. I have the identical 83 I got 3 weeks ago, that looks like new, with a blown engine, and all those parts are going onto this 83 bike. :claps:

Yaaahhhoooo!!:ROFL:
