On the road again !!

My repair guru calls it "Lucky", I call it "the Resurrection". My iron horse sat in the original owner's garage since 1984, untagged and unridden. Rebuilt carbs and replaced all the usual (tires, battery, belts, rear shocks). Saved original seat because it had a small crack (and replaced it with something a little more comfortable.) 23K all-original miles.
Took it over to the original owners on Mother's Day to give them a ride. Both were thrilled to see this baby back on the road.

That's one heck of a passenger back rest!! Probably very comfortable, but very high :twisted:
