This machine was last used on the roads in England in 1999. The motor turns over with compression . It uses coil ignition so would probably only need a battery to get it running. I bought it 10 years ago in England. It could be put into service and enjoyed the way it is, or would be an easy restoration. The main thing is would need is paint and chroming. Mileage stated is not correct but a number needed to place the bike for sale. It has no speedometer or odometer.
