Once the original parts arrived the original engine and gearcase were carefully removed, Engine was 100% rebuilt. It sounds amazing. Aside from a few nuts and bolts the following parts were replaced:
-Entire exhaust systems pipes muffler and clamps.
-License plate bracket
-Ignition Switch (oem unit with key)
This is a 100% original Paint and patina bike that has never been restored. This is a true survivor, still retaining OE wiring, tires, lighting. All lights work and the machine runs and drives.
