This bike (VIN: 2990390) was torn down to the frame and crank, and highlights include a custom seat, new fairing, extended swingarm, rebuilt forks and brakes, a rebuilt motor, and more.

The seller notes that “it’s a 100% functional vintage motorcycle with some aging evidences and patina. There are some scratches on the fuel tank. There is a crank on the windshield caused by installation mistake.” The seller has an album of over 300 photos, many of which were during the rebuild process.
