    We need good tech writers that are willing to help out here at ZL-OA.

Send a private message to Furchin, Mudrunner88, Chris, Jarney, Wuputt, or Markus56 and we can lead you in the right direction to get started.

    There has to be a reserve on that peach. There's a clean blue 75 in PGH CL for 1900.

    :hello: I had the same 1978 but in blue. I rode the Hell out of it. I logged over 30 K miles on it. Every 5 K it got new rings & at 10 K new piston & rings. At 30 K it was bored out 1 mm over with WISECO piston & rings. When I moved to FL I gave it to my Nephew Jim. These new Duel Sport bikes are to tall & anything smaller than a 450 is a dog that is if anyone makes one.
