Seeing the great vintage iron on ths thread inspired me to post. So I restored this machine a couple years ago after finding near Chicago. I purchased it from the son of the original owner who raced it from 80-83 and then parked it it a shed. It still had dirt on it from that last race when I got it, but all those years of sitting were definitely not kind to it. I quickly decided against preserving it as an "original" with patina because it was really more of an eyesore. Some parts were also pillaged over the years, but it was remarkably complete and it had a street title. In fact, he even still had the gas tank that came off before it left the showroom! It was raced with a white plastic tank.
