It really is all there.
it is a great candidate for a full restore or just add some elbow grease, new cables and some love, and it could be a easily be a daily driver in all of its original patina!
It starts right up with the magic button (kick start too) and has a newish battery. It runs and drives and shifts through the gears with ease; could use some clutch adjustment and new cables. The chrome is in great shape with no visible pitting on the fenders and much of the other bits. The side covers are complete in excellent shape with no cracks; emblems intact. The tank would shine up pretty well, has some scuffs and bumps, but the inside is in very good shape and is very functional. The exhaust is in very good shape and the chrome on the heat shield is excellent. The headers look great too. The rims also look great and would clean up very well. The seat foam is comfy, but the cover is hideous; i think it was made by someone who hates old honda's.
The exhaust system, the side covers, and the fenders are nearly worth the price of admission, but it includes a running honda 350 twin motor!
It is not cleaned and polished but comes barn fresh and running.
it is a project, so don't plan on riding it home just yet.
clear title in hand. $1000
