Looks nice. That 2 into 1 expansion chamber could've been avoided.

I really loved its Rumbling ROAR ! I had it for a few months from my friend. He had gone for a few months for a training & he entrusted its upkeep to me.

man its was Black machine. i use to roar past in busy shopping arenas desperately desiring attention from chicks around. Yes, few did turn their heads most of them with lot annoying looks as to ask whats making so much noise but i use to love that ! How did u get it for ... hope you are geared up for it costly upkeep etc. To my knowledge you will have some issue sourcing spares !

Any-which way keep up your Enjoyment !

Super is all I can say. Is it running on points or converted to CDI?

I used to have an LT and had restored every part thanks to my friend/mechanic. After 6 years I can still feel the engine between my legs, very very fond memories. Friend - take care of her, enjoy the ride and ride safe. Respect the bike she respects you.

I see bits of a cafe racer there......where did you get the clubman from?! did it come with the bike?!

Rearset controls and it'd be amazing!

My RD was a 2x1 set up when I got it. It sounds nice & moves decent. But in reality it was robbing it off power. So if you get a chance to change it, I suggest you do. Plus, twin exhaust always looked better too.

As for the parts etc, you get everything nowdays, but only if you look in the right places.

Congrats.
