Speaking of which...I've got a line on an '86 that looks to be restoration level worthy based on the listing pictures. Just hope no one snags it before I can get to it this weekend. It's a few hours away and ridiculously cheap, even for a non runner.

you can't sit long on these ole girls, folks snag them up just for parts !. even a non-runner will bring lots of cash to the right person who is in need of parts to keep theirs going !. if it wasn't for getting parts for them ?, i'd be doing them all day long !. I just don't have the patience for restoring them when parts are so far and few between to get ahold of ?!. I love them to death..true proven machines to say the least !.

Send me the link so I can snatch it up before you get a chance to buy it.

I kid, I kid.

You’re going to have a yard full of them.

It's up near St Louis but the guy isn't going out of his way to make it available for me to pick up.

Think it's hard for us to get parts for these old girls? Imagine being 17, short on funds, and from the U.K., like the kid that sent me a message on ebay regarding an airbox cover. Even if you could find the parts, you'd have to find someone willing to ship internationally and at a HUGE expense. We got it good.

You're right about that Ebay rig not being a parts bike, Shadetree...not yet anyhow. They're all parts bikes in the end though

Ha! I'm just thinning the heard of the weak and incomplete rigs. Those that remain will be better for it. The rear ends of the dead will live on.....bolted to some dudes 300 and treated like a submarine.

Wow pulled off the airbox to find the ignition harness hacked up by the PO
And airbox full of mouse poop.
Worms in the kill switch assembly and the kill switch locked in RUN position somehow.
The PO has had one valve adjustment cap off but musta give up on it.

I bought a used main harness, a NOS ignition switch, NOS switch harness and a headlight bracket.

Maybe later today Ill pull the fenders but im going for a putt now.

What's up with all of the wiring hackers on this planet... is that due to a genetic disorder, or what? :-(

Glad ya found a good used harness... there can't be many of them remaining in the wild that are unmolested. That bike is still in pretty good condition isn't it. Good candidate!
