    :hello: For 8 K I feel that is a bit much. I got a 1974 for $400. It is still in PA. I'm not sure when I'll pick it up. It needs a total restore. The motor is locked up but it comes with a new crank shaft and some other new parts.

    :hello: I think at that price it would be an investment.

    At any price that would be an investment! Just may not be a wise one! Probably a NAKTC member selling.

    :hello: MARTIN: You are correct. I went to their WEB Site. They don't have much activity going on. About 3 months ago I bought a 500 Tripple from my friend Matt in Hastings PA for $400. It is a complete bike with extra parts. I'm not sure when I'll pick it up or when I'll get to it after I do get it. The motor doesn't turn over. It comes with a brand new KAW crankshaft and a new custom built 3 into one exspansion chamber. A new crank brings between $500 and $700. The exhaust is big $$$.
