    Bought this bike over summer, moved off to school before I had time to get it in riding condition again. Started fine when I had it, but ran on one cylinder.
    Needs new piston rings, valve seals, etc.
    Previous owner had made this into a scrambler type thing. I was planning on turning it back into a street bike (but ran into the engine problem that I didn't have the time to fix).
    Motor is out of the frame, head was removed by a professional and is boxed up so I don't have any pictures of it.
    Have boxes of parts too (seat, side covers, mirrors, etc)
    Located in Sonoma County, CA. Make me an offer!

    Would you be willing to part with the tank?You might be better served selling folks individual parts. Let me know if you want to, I might be interested

    I may have one for an 82. If that would work. I’ll double check the year if interested.

    Oh, so they are all the same E tube? The carbs from the 77 are a little different but the E tubes look alike.
