Re: From Rags to Riches!

You really resurrected a machine given up for dead and turned it into a little racer anyone would be proud to own. What sort of performance does it deliver? Did the porting really add significant gain? Can you post a larger photo?

Re: From Rags to Riches!

Nice work on resurrecting a dead machine. Been there, done that, so I can really appreciate the work you put into it.

Awesome gas tank the previous owner had .....
