The bike is located in Redding, CA where it was built.- YZ426 exhaust mufflers that have been shortened and adjusted to fit this motorcycle.

This is a very nice upgrade.- Both electric & kick start- Honda gas tank modified to fit the Yamaha frame- 1,500 original miles (cannot be certain but all evidence points to this being the true mileage)- Base coat / Clear coat paint (automotive grade, fuel will not wrinkle or damage the clear coat)- Original brakes / wheels / suspension / engine / handlebar controls - Clubman handle barsThis bike is VERY nice and practically brand new in terms of mileage (and it shows).
