    Hello and thanks for all of the comments…..yes the bike is for sale. I really dont want to sell it but I need money for another bike project. Contact me at [email protected]
    Asking $3000

  11. Chuck says:

    What kind of machine work has been done to the head?

  12. Dave says:

    The head was bead blasted, three angle valve job, new valve guides along with new valves. The head was mildly ported having the casting marks cleaned up from the intake and exhaust areas. It was not a radical port job, but the engine pulled noticeably stronger after the work. The full potential of the port work was realized once the 1.5″ headers were fitted. It is a really fun bike. I took it out last week even though it was really cold……….might not want to sell this bike after all!!!

    did it take a good deal of fab work to get that tank to work?

  19. David says:

    Very little fab work. But I did learn stuff from trial and error that I will pass along to you and others. These tanks are awesome! They are in great shape if purchased via ebay (the same guy always sells them). Drill a 1/4″ or 5/16″ hole in backbone of frame and weld a the same size nut over the hole (frame tubing is not thick enough to support cutting threads for the bolt that holds tank to frame) I think I used a 3-4″ bolt to attach the tank to the frame. Also thick rubber like that from hose works well to insulate the tank from the frame to deal with vibrations.
