I'm told the bike has 44k km but with the new 1150 guages I'm not sure.

I saw some pics of Steptoe's on another thread so I wasn't totally shocked to see all the friction material in a spiders nest at the bottom of the housing ... in fact when I saw that I was releived as it meant the tranny probably isn't cooked.
