Welcome to the site!
Give us a little history on your wing - it looks great! How does it run, how many miles, etc. Regards, Johnyy

well it has 51000 km and is in great shape!! It runs great..took it for a short ride yesterday but I need to replace the front tire.
Its a shame...the tire is like barnd new but the side walls are all split......its a Avon venum....I will post a pic a little later!! When the guy advertised the bike he said two new I seen the condition of the front tire and questioned he knocked $100 of the price. I know a tire will cost much more than that but over all the bike is in great condition so it was still a great buy!!

Nice looking bike. I just replaced the front tire on my 82 and it only cost me $65 I think. I got front and rear for $129, they are Shinko 230 Tour Master. Nice tire with tons of good reviews. Front tire is also easy to replace, I did both of mine, but the front is the easiest.
Good luck and have fun, be safe.

Welcome to the site, you will learn a lot here just do a little investigation. What was the date code on your front tire, I put new avon venoms on my bike last year and they still look great!
