Seller notes: “Complete restoration”
I have a clean and clear NC title in my name.This bike was acquired last year and I have done a complete restoration. The numbers and date codes of the components are on a document in the pictures.The rims and spokes are new, OE style in front and rear. New Dunlop tires, tubes and rim protectors.The frame and swing arm are powder coated. The powder coat was so thick around the VIN I masked then painted the spot where the frame VIN is located to be able to see it.The carburetors ( jetting 112.5 main/ 17.5 pilot), engine, gages, and handle bar switch were restored to very high standards by Clay Stockdall of Paola, KS. The engine has new zinc or OE re-plated fasteners throughout. It has electronic points and electronic regulator and rectifier.I polished the Fork Lowers, engine covers, rear brake drum and sprocket hub.It has an OE master cylinder ( with plastic still on the lever) and caliper that have been rebuilt. It has an OE air box, owners manual and wire harness.The paintwork is from Japan via Z-1 Parts and is beautiful.950% of the reproduction parts are from Z-1 Parts.net and are very nice: seat, exhaust, rear shocks, tank and side cover badges, fuel cap and petcock, electronic regulator/rectifier, both fenders, stator and cover, cables, 73 style headlight mounts, and more small parts.Anywhere I could find stainless reasonably I have used it. I have scuffed the 6 & 8 mm bolt heads to look zinc. The rest of the hardware on the bike has been re-plated in zinc or chromed.I am not sure of the exact mileage, I have the gages restored and left at what ever miles are on them. There is no tool kit. Right foot peg has a small touch mark on the end, these are OE pegs re-plated. I've included a video of it running prior to installing the paint set. I have just completed the bike and ridden it around the parking lot. You should check to be sure everything stays tight and set up for your comfort.
