Bike was purchased 2 1/2 years ago from 2nd owner. Owner was a woman in her early 70's who rode this bike in the 70's and 80's. It had a Vetter fairing and Krauser bags/luggage rack. Mufflers were slip on to accomadate the Krauser bags. The seat was dished out to accept her size. Her husband rode a Concorse during that time. Parts replaced were pipes (Doremi 4 into 4), spokes, all wheel bearings, new bronze swing arm bushings, seat, tires, all engine gaskets and seals, all brake lines + rebuild kits for the master cyl & caliper, new clutch cable, new front pads, rear drum brakes were cleaned and reinstalled, chain & sprokets(530 chain / sprockets conversion) , new electronic regulator/rectifier, new chain guard, fork seals (disassembled,cleaned-new fork oil), new gas cap gasket. Carbs were cleaned with ultrasonic cleaner, valves were checked / adjusted, cam chain was adjusted. Engine was not disassembled other than to replace gaskets and to polish covers. The problamatic alternator oil seal was replaced with a new pliable seal and should not give you problems. Original petcock could not be salvaged so quality Pingel installed. All other parts are original to the bike. I do not have a tool kit for this bike. Bike does have a chain oil tank / dipstick but the pump is missing. Original paint is in extremly good condition other than one small rock chip on left side of tank and a rub mark on the tail piece from the luggage rack. Gages have not been rebuilt and show the exact mileage. I have a clear Minnesota title but bike is located in Idaho. The bike is ridden often and runs very well. As you can see from the pictures it has a electronic ignition (mech advance) which was installed by the 2nd owner. This has to be one of the original aftermarket ignitions offered and still runs perfect. The neck bearings are still the original ball type and were cleaned inspected and reinstalled.I normally would replace these with the tapered bearings but decided to leave as much original parts as I could. All electrics were checked and as mentioned above I replaced the regulator and rectifier and also wired in a relay which feeds the ignition circuit directly vs through the kill switch.
