Description: 6 speed, disk front brake, electric start.

I have a big old honda fairing I'm thinking about putting on it.

Installed 4.8 gallon tank off a 78 gs750. Now if I can get 105mpg I'll have a 500 mile range

Strapped a soft stanley toolbox on the back seat, Now I have trunk!!

Build Thread:
Current Mods: 03/21/08 vacuum gauge installed, bounces a lot at idle (needs restriction in line), doesn't break 5 inches unless engine braking. Haven't been able to make good use of it yet.

03/24 installed 37 tooth sprocket (was 47!), I like it a lot better as the gears are more useful. Can't imagine it doesn't help economy.

4/21/08 Mounted seat lower on frame and put rear springs on lowest setting.

4/23/08 put some paint marks on the throttle for a throttle position sensor

Planned Mods: additional neutral detents between 6/5 and 4/3

Maybe the fairing will help, maybe not.

Develop fuel consumption instrumentation.

Eventually hope to make it electric.
