    And walk out with a motorcycle..

    I have no idea if I did well on price, it's a bit a mystery as to what's been done, I'm not huge on the colours or the white stuff, but in all it's 90% there.. change bars and air filter and just ride it. But matching numbers is a nice plus.

    It was an import so we're not sure of history.

    It's an extra! 

    Someone's done a lot of the hard work with the hardtail, twins discs etc.

    I think for summer I'll just change bars, aircleaner and ride the damn thing, winter I'll decide if I want any serious changes.

    very nice purchase
    see what you mean about the filter. doesnt really suit
    the blue and white work pretty well together.

    Maybe a filter assembly off a shovel would suit.

    Cute Sporty; matching numbers is a win. I agree bars, paint, seat and grips and you have a winer. What year out of curiosity?

    Its plated 12/79.. so 80 model year.
    Tyres on it are old so putting black walls on it (whites are not my bag).

    Small issue though as Ive just found, being its not registered, Ive been warned I may need to go get a VOSS certification along with a Vicroads inspection, seems a RWC is not enough.
    Im sort of stepping back for a bit until I can get all clarifications on getting it registered, really don't want to be stuck with it not being able to be Reg'd. Supposedly there is some paperwork to go with it showing compliance etc.

    Ah.. no VASS (dont know why I wrote Voss before) required for club reg? 
    Cool, thats much easier, kinda scary when the general public know more that bloody VicRoads (they really were struggling with info)

    Thanks!

    RWC done..
    Bars ordered (Pangea Streamilner rabbits)
    Aircleaner ordered (Chopper Daves 4";)

    And.. sissy bar DIY kit ordered, really for $89 inc prebent basic shape, weld on bungs and brackets seems an awesome deal.

    Slow progress..
    I crashed it 3 days after I bought it (long story).

    Anyway, insurance gave me money, I've taken it to a fabricator guy, I've sourced new parts.. this is how it sits right now, new tank on, new bars, new seat..
    Frame is being cleaned up, then off to be stripped and painted black. Gear box has been rebuilt (long story), rear guard will be chopped and shortened, sissy bar still to be welded up. Exhaust being kept, fishtails off but cocktails to go on.

    Had some dramas?

    The tank and seat are a big improvement in my eyes. Black frame will set it all off. I liked the fishtails - be interested to see how it comes up with your new pipes.

    Keep the pics coming :-)

    So close to strip down and paint now.. front end can wait until next winter at this stage.
