About

Purchased used for $1000.
Drove it for 7 years till one carb. float got stuck and the #1 cylinder was washed in gas and the piston got a whole lot of extra clearance.
With over 200k miles on it I think it would have gone on forever if not for the carb. problem.

Specs

1000 cc's
65 hp.
4 cylinder opposed engine.
5 speed

Mods

poilished all the aluminum parts on top of the engine.
Makes it look real nice.

Repainted it RED to make it go faster. ;-)

Took off all the luggage and fairnings, to go faster. ;-)

Ported the heads and polished the combustion chambers.

Added a RAM AIR hose from the front of the radiator to the carb. box.

Added Progressive springs to the front forks.
