I am reluctantly selling my 1972 H2. I built the bike to be a good rider instead of a restored show bike so the frame paint is rough but still has its original stickers. The body paint is show quality with RB's graphics.
The engine was rebuilt by the previous owner with fresh crank and top end. It has about a thousand miles on the rebuild now. The oil injection system is present and working. I replaced the clutch release mechanism with a low effort Ralf Gillie unit and a new clutch cable. I run a Pingel fuel tap so no leaks and has positive shutoff.
In the past year I replaced the tires, and installed a heavy duty chain with new countershaft sprocket. I rebuilt the front brake caliper with new seals and a stainless piston, and new pads. All of the lights, signals etc work as they should.
The bike has a new low speed coil, CDI unit and regulator, all from Jim Hobbs at Lakeland Electronics. No sense in riding around on 50 year old ignition components when new better parts are available. The manky old originals are included with the bike.
The center stand has been modified so it actually works properly, and I installed a longer side stand so the bike doesn't lean way too far over. The stock side stand is included.
The swingarm is powder coated with new brass bushings to replace the stock plastic parts. The bike still has its original chain oiler and “made in Japan” spark plug holder.
The bike starts easily with choke and runs very well. If the weather is nice the mileage may go up this weekend. People love seeing it on the road so get used to a lot of thumbs up while you're out on it.Payment by check must clear bank before the bike leaves here.
If you have any questions or need other pics just let me know. Thanks for looking.
