    Been looking for a bike to throw in the trainer and save the wear and tear on my bike and my buddy hooked me up with this. Try it and see how it goes ! If steel is real this is as real as it gets, this thing is incredibly heavy :), good thing it's just going in the trainer.

    Looks like it was sitting in a garage some where. My new one has been sitting outside for years.

    Not bad, gonna need a new rear skin, minimum and some work on the limit screws. Got an old set of skins and tubes out in the garage :cool:

    Looks area deceiving, kinda. The paint is in pretty rough shape, but hey :thumbsup:

    That price drives a lot of deals !

    Not a clue ! I would bet on early 80ish though. Gota take it for a spin around the block before I sentence it to trainer duty !

    Just my lucky day Doo :D

    Took the steel beauty out around the block today, what a cool ride ! I was really impressed how that thing rides ! I have decided to put some new tires on it and see how it will really ride !
