owner Steve Allen will be handling all aspects of this
transaction on behalf of the gentleman who owns it. Steve
has known the owner for about a decade. This bike is in
very good condition but is not perfect, as this bike has been
ridden off & on throughout it's life, not just sitting on
display... It is not a trailer queen.
This fine example of a 750 Sport has a clean California title
and current CA registration. Below is the text that the
owner has provided pertaining to this bike.

will need to be re-lined.

fittings etc. Side covers are the correct ones with
perimeter fasteners. Small battery tray is correct.

has been rebuilt along with the speedometer.

clipons are on the bike. Lockheed front disk works
perfectly, no leaky seals. Marzocchi leading axle front
