I named the bike before it arrived. Jezebel.
She's a temptress.
She's a whore.
She's a backstabbin' witch.
She'll give you a thrill.
She'll make you cry...
She will steal all the money from your pant's pockets.
At this point I know NOTHING about this bike. Motorcycles in general. The story was thus:
The bike was a "daily runner" with 49,734 miles showing.
The slingers will HAVE to be done, cause there is no documentation indicating that they were ever done.
It's in original condition, not ratty, but well used.
I mean REALLY???? WHAT could go wrong?
It looks like minimal maintenance had always been performed, which could be a good thing...as you know...too many chef's can spoil ze broth.
I'm told, that with luck, a gasket set and some bearings I can be roadworthy
for an additional $1000...
Gee! That sounds pretty good! I was SOOoooo cute at that age!......
