I remember that bike when it first hit the market. It was certainly different, maybe a little too different. Many a dealer was stuck with them. I wonder how much one is worth today in pristine condition?

Unfortuanatly, Its store right now - I need to go in the carbs and do some cleaning, but, Im not sure if I can get the parts Ill need . Ive got a guy checking on it, so, maybe, just maybe I will be able to take it to the vintage days @ Barbers this October.

Great video. I reely reely enjoyed it!!!!



I tried to kick start one of those back then. I could not budge the lever.

I said I never had much use for one.
