I can hotwire a car, bake a souffle and rewire motor controls for high end switchgear but can't post a picture of my latest score. I broke my tailgate trying to get it in my truck and missed class but I've got the title and key all for NO dollars.

I bought a new battery, cleaned the carbs and got fresh gas and she fired right up. At least iI know she runs before breaking it apart for rebuild.

... But does it run well?

Too bad the pipes are damaged; They're the coolest part from that model.

I wouldn't say well, but it idles and I did take down the block once even though it's got no brakes. It really doesn't start moving until 6000 rpm. I tried to upload a movie file to image shack but it wouldn't take. My initial research is telling me parts (you can get nos pipes) for this bike are easier to get than my cb 360 project. This ones getting moved to the front burner.

i love stories like that. stay away form the big bore kits. like the 500 kit with the rods and the big shit like that. those bikes are notorious rod throwers when you build them. great score though.

Nabbed a runner for no money, good on you. Always liked the 400 ss.
