I believe the motor is stock.
When I bought the bike I did tune up to include valve shims, carb synch, and valve cover gasket. I also wired up lights and blinkers. This bike originally had hardly any wiring, and what was there was a mess. I went through and added what I needed to, using crimp connectors and heat wrap. It works and is reliable. That being said, a future upgrade would be a stock wiring harness and controls (I had to make do with gutted light/blinker controls). I would also consider a future rebuild of the front calipers. They work fine, but you can see the rubber boots are torn. The rear brake could use a new rubber or braided steel line and it needs the occasional bleeding (haven't gotten around to figuring out the cause yet).
There is no key. blinkers are on a three way switch, lights are an on or off switch plus a high/low switch, and the ignition is on/off from the kill switch.
The bike has electric start and kick start. the kick starter lever can be taken off, so if you disconnect the starter and go kick only, the lever can be used as the "key".
The bike also comes with the following:
1x spare carburetor bank for parts (has stuck slides)
1x spare tail piece
1x spare tank
1x spare seat cover
1x front number plate
1x Clymer manual and assorted notes/receipts
1x modified stator cover (notched for more cornering clearance)
I ride this bike almost daily and it has been dead reliable. It pulls strongly through all gears. This bike proudly wears the scars of it's past life. This bike can be made track ready with only a few changes.
I'm not sure what it's really worth, so make me an offer.
I'll upload more pictures when I get home.
Wishing I had some spare cash right now. I like all the battle scar character it's got too.
Love the indicator toggle switch
If you sell any of the spare parts seperate, I would be extremely interested in the clearanced stator cover. Possibly the spare gas tank as well.
I'm pretty sure I saw that bike for sale a year or two ago... I was asking my vintage shop buddy about bike shipping but never pulled the trigger.

Love it..... apart from the steering damper which only appears to damp the right end of the oscillation... on left lock there will be little to no damping effect as the motion of oscillation is almost at right angles to the damper. and it appears to be mounted using a flimsy bracket.
Other than that, nice little muscle bike for someone.
7/10, would totally bang.
Nice bike. Wish I could get away with another toy right now....
It ain't easy bein' fat and greasy.
