Build project or sell for parts?
Hello guys and gals,
Just picked up a 74 CL72 off of craigslist. The bike is pretty complete but missing some key parts. Front fender, left side color, and misc items like speedo and some pegs. My question is, would it be better to sell this bike for parts and get capital to start a different project? I opened up the motor, the rocker arms are rusted...which makes me hesitate a lot. Has the seat, right side cove,r rear fender, exhaust, bars forks etc...I just know it's a hassle to try and sell parts. I'm very comfortable completing the build, just unfamiliar with parts availability and costs and any specialized tools required to complete...i.e. clutch pack gear tool etc. From what I know of the history, hasn't been registered since the 70's, barn yard find. Unknown last run date.
P.S. if anyone is interested I'm in the San Diego area. Or if you have any of the above parts above at a cheap price that may inspire a build....thanks all and keep the rubber side down!
