That is awesome! these old bikes are not perfect but certainly well worth the fixing up. I contrast a 10,000$ KTM to a 1000$ old Honda and find that the over all fun factor is pretty similar. Plus, the added excitement of 'is something gonna blow' (or start, LOL) gives it just that much more in the adventure category. I've put about 300 miles on mine, and a few issues have come up but I'm working through them as time allows.
