Description

THIS MK III WAS BOUGHT NEW FROM A DEALER BY A GUY IN STURGES S.D. HE STORED IT WELL BUT NEVER RODE IT TILL ONE SUMMER ABOUT 30 YEARS LATER. HE PUT A LITTLE OVER 1700 AND DIDNT RIDE IT AGAIN. I BOUGHT IT FROM HIM IN 2008 WHEN MONEY GOT CRAPPY. ONCE I GOT IT I WENT COMPLETELY THRU IT. FIRST THING I DID WAS CHANGE THE FLUIDS AND START IT UP. THE BIKE RAN BEAUTIFULLY AND REMARKABLY LIKE NEW.QUIET, MOOTH, LUTCH PERFECT AS WELL AS THE SHIFT. THE BRAKES NEEDED R&R AND I REPLACED THE FRONT MASTER CYLINDER AS WELL AS ALL LINES AND FLUIDS. THE FRONT FORK SPRINGS WERE SAGING AND THE FRONT END WAS A LITTLE SPONGY SO THEY WERE REPLACED WITH NEW SEALS AND FLUID. GAS TANK WAS BLACK AND A LITTLE EDGEY WITH SCUFFS AND SCRATCHES SO IT AND THE SIDE COVERS WERE REPAINTED IN THE JOHN PLAYER COLORS. AFTER I DID ALL THIS TO IT I TOOK THE BIKE FOR A 20 MILE RIDE AND WAS SATISFIED THAT EVERY THING WAS EXCELLENT. I THEN DRAINED THE GAS, OOK THE BATTERY OUT AND PUT IT UNDER COVER. ONLY FLAW IS THE UNDERSIDE OF THE ORIGINAL LEFT HAND BLACK CAP MUFFLER HAS A DIME SIZE HOLE FROM CONDENSATION. CANT SEE IT UNLESS YOU CRAWL UNDERNEATH. THE RIGHT SIDE IS STILL GOOD BUT MIGHT NOT BE FAR BEHIND. PLEASE LOOK CLOSLY AT THE PICTURES AND ASK QUESTIONS. I WILL NOT RESPOND TO QUESTIONS THAT ASK WHAT THE RESERVE IS, OW MUCH I WANT AND WILL I END THE AUCTION EARLY. I WILL NOT END THE AUCTION EARLY AS IT IS UNFAIR TO REAL BIDDERS
PAYPAL DEOPSIT Of $500 DUE AT END OF AUCTION. BALANCE DUE IN 7 DAYS NO PAYPAL FOR BALANCE BUYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SHIPPING. I WILL NOT CRATE THE BIKE. I CAN STORE THE BIKE BUT NOT LONGER THAN 30 DAYS
