General Information

Formerly "90's teal", now black
Bought this one in the spring of '15, for the sum of $1200 as my project bike for the year, completely stock when I bought it. I did a good amount of looking around forums for a while and the first thing I decided to do was a carb cleaning and, although I didn't intend to initially, and ear shave (after I couldn't get the damn carbs out). Initially I removed the tank and fenders and gave them a cheap black plasti-dip cover-up job, but I wasn't happy with that. Eventually I took everything apart properly and after way too much work blacked just about everything I could out on the bike and changed out a bunch of components: New headlight assembly, turn signals, modified the stock seat to sit flush with the fender, handgrips and mirrors, etc.
