Back on bike after nearly 20 years

Postby jimv50 » Sun Jul 12, 2015 8:54 am

Originally a US registered bike but now in Ireland.
Paid E1500 for it with new tyres, battery, nearly new chain and a service.
Not sure the tank should have more decals or stripes on it but looks good as it is

Very nice. If from the US Looks like it is a 81 or 82 standard model.
That would be it for a 81 i believe but a 82 should have a couple stripes on the bottom of the tank. From the side cover I would say a 81. 82 had badges.
Did you clean the tank out?!?!?!?!

Back on a bike after nearly 20 years, and first breakdown

Yes 1981 definitely, has the big USA only information sticker on the headstock with the year for everyone to see, I wasn't sure if someone in the pass had removed the decals or stripes on the tank.
Went out for the first time today on it and broke down, tab on a battery lead was broken off and all the electricity ran out :lol:
Had the fun of bump starting it successfully in front of a crowd.
Went great, i'd forgotten how noisy the engines are and how much vibration bike engines put out compared to a car engine.
