Restored condition with all of the good modifications.

9,929 mile bike *

Aircraft Engine Overhaul Shop, Chief Inspector, restored and  owned for six years. I enjoyed restoring it but advancing years, (mine), means that it sits in the back of the garage most of the time.  Now my son is taking a five year course in College, one extra year. I'm looking to get out of it, what I put into it. It has some 3,000 miles since restoration, this is a viable machine. Two plaques from Dania Beach, classic show.
