I bought one last spring out of a fit of nostalgia. Nice looking bike, good handling and torque. HOWEVER the vibration is literally unbearable. A short trip to the donut shop would leave my hands numb. It is no wonder the 70s were dominated by four cylinder bikes. The parallel and vtwins of the 50s and 60s were(are) like jackhammers compared to even the worst four cylinder. Leave this bike to the vintage dirt trackers.

I bought this bike back in 1992 -- I'd say it had been around the clock once then and it's nearly up to doing it again. I've rebuilt the engine once. I love having both electric and kick start!!! It's a shame parts are getting harder to find. The only thing I could wish for is one more gear - it revs a little high when you're cruising in the country.
