Thanks.

Yep, she's a beauty alright.

I really wasn't looking for another bike, but I just couldn't resist...

Actually, yes it does.

The '99 is mechanically sound but it is somewhat cosmetically challenged. I knew the bike had been dropped, but what I didn't know is portions of the tupperware support structure are deformed to the extent that some attachment points are off enough to cause mounting tabs to fail, particularly in the area of the left saddle bag and the rear wheel cover between the left and right saddle bags.

There is also some misalignment in the front cowl area and between the trunk bottom and the trunk lid.
