 Ok ,,, here is one youve been looking  for ,, the rare and elusive 1971 RT1B 360 Enduro ,,, last of the awesome beast with the ported piston before the reed valve engine,,, known as GODZILLA back in the day.. it has tons of compression and awesome torque ,,, like riding a bull with a firecracker up his butt,,, better hang on with this one.  truly a dream to trail ride on or cruise at highway speeds. the bike has mostly original patina except for the fenders which were repainted correct colors,,,,      IT IS 45 years old and not perfect but close,,, im having knee surgery in a few weeks and will not be able to kick it for quite some time so im going to sell it reluctantly . no title , bill of sale only.    it has two issues ,,,needs cab adjustment or a rebuild kit  (cheap fix) and clutch plates sometimes stick when it gets warm (another cheap fix ),,, both not over 80 bucks.    The bike usually cranks 1st or 2 nd kick,,, excellent to restore and show,,, it just won best bike at a local show,,,, it is not without some scratches and nicks , dings, and flaws,,, you get what you see ,,, AS IS ,,, i will assist in shipping  NO TITLE,,,, BILL of SALE ONLY

here is a video of it running
