Alright, after half-heartedly trying to sell this a couple years ago, it's time to get serious. Love the bike, owned it for the past 17 years, but it's gotta go. Needs nothing, runs great, sounds incredible. Thick stack of receipts from Nichols and Desmotosport, 17 years of maintenance records. $3500 rides it away. The description is all current, except I changed the oil and oil filter and put in a brand new battery.

Can't seem to add photos, so PM me or email me for pics.
