ok, so i bought this bike for $800 in march 2012 with nearly 3000 miles on the clock. it was white, had a cold starting issue and old cracked up tires
on account of the tires, i had it trailered back to my house so i could give it a fine toothed comb inspection. the tires were cracking, but still had a couple miles left on them, seeing as i just go around town mostly, i thought this was ok.

after driving it around town a couple weeks, i decided that the carb would have to be cleaned again.
upon inspection of the carb, i found rust, and that the airbox to carb manifold would have to be replaced, so i ordered the part and cleaned the carb really well. drilled the plug and turned the screw two turns out.
i added a mirror to the left side as this bike came to me with neither mirrors nor blinkers.
