“I bought a nice set of carbs that where missing and sent them to the Bing factory to get them refurbished to as new.”

“I bought a new headlight glass and an air box.”

“I also bought a new NOS throttle assembly that was missing.”

“From what I can see without putting it together it is missing the brake shoes, and that is about it.”

“Of course, there will be other small things found I am sure but I can’t tell what they are without assembling the bike.”

“The original rims were polished and Buchanan’s rebuilt the wheels with new spokes.”

“The motor was rebuilt, and I was told the gearbox as well.”

Cosmetic Blemishes:
There is a small scratch on the frame under the motor, I don’t think it will show the motor is mounted. There is also a small nick on the headlight bucket.”
