It lives!!!

after a couple long months of other projects&finding parts, I took a 4 day weekend and buckled down on this baby

Before






After



Need to paint the tank and re dip my plastics, work out the kill switch, new chain, grips, paint the tank and tinker with some other odds and ends but after a quick carb tune up this morning she lives and breathes,
and what a beast she is! starting this thing's like kicking over a brick wall. but it wicks right up and hits like a hammer, feels little warm (running engine ice to keep the temp down a bit) but I tested the thermo and the fan...guess they ran this hot?
SO PUMPED!!!

Mother of GOD!!!!!!!

Got the 327 set. Thing is so weird to ride, hops much better than my other bikes but is HEAVY feeling. the gearing is SUPER high above 3rd gear and 1 is so low it's almost useless. throttle response is slow from idle, but it hits like nothing I've ever been on from 10-15% throttle! it chugs like a tractor and then WHAM it turns into a cheeta that pulls out from under you (like it comes onto an imaginary pipe?) and it is QUIET now that I sealed everything up. Need to get some pictures and call myLEO to make it street legal!

And then there was one

Just picked up an '07 4rt so both of my gassers are on the auction block.

$1800 for the '96 270 (exttra fender, fork seals, gaskets etc.)
$1800 for the 92 320 ( probably needs fork seals)

Both of these bikes were rebuilt from the ground up and are in great running shape. the 270 is my everyday bike and is better than new.
The 320 was a street legal project I got to the "get it registered" stage when I started riding more and tinkering less.
I have all the reiceipts, info, and manuals for both bikes (no certificate of origin on either just Bill of sale)
PM me with questions or interest

Bikes look good, good luck with the sale.
Can you tell us how you got the plating off the frame of the 96?

I'd kill for a Trials bike, but live in Indy and am afraid that I won't have any place to ride it. Any advice on where to ride around here?

There's a certain back yard in Beech Groove that is a Trials Heaven...
Plus we have a 100 acre playground just west of Bloomington with 20 sections or so.

Will you throw in access to this backyard with the sale of the bike? .

Will buy beer.

The '96 is gone.

I just sand blasted that chrome off, stuff was on there aobut as tight as seran wrap...I've never seen a '94-5-6 that held its chrome well.

The 327 is still up for grabs, It's by no means as nice as my 270 but it'd be a super starter bike and an AMAZING trail bike! (always thought it'd be fun to ride an AMA MAXC cross country event on this bike) If you could get it through the red tape factory it'd be a sweet little 'round towner for making mayhem. It's really getting in the way getting out X-mass stuff.

I'd like to sell it before the weather gets nice so I can get a beefy skidpan, new snail cams, and some fork covers for my 4rt.

I'm told Saddleback is nice, Stoney is nice, hell just drive down to bloomington and ride the rocks on the cuts in the hills on 37. There are some nice blocks there. I'll ride anywhere and on anything as long as I'm not causing property damage or seriously trespassing

Honestly though if this is a 1st bike, you'll ride a lot of figure 8s in parking lots and your driveway. I spent a whole winter on my '96 getting my balance sorted and then practicing front and rear hops before I really rode the thing.
