This fine old Brit and I go back to 1984
Here's the short version of my "Grab a cold one & sit down" story.

When I acquired this early every part painted with rattle can black.
I did ride it for a long time in the "all black" as it were, it made a great bar hop scoot!
Then one winter with too much time on my hands I turned a low maintenance scoot into a " HEY DON'T TOUCH THAT" 
I got over that and enjoyed riding it again.
I saw no advantage to bringing this back to dual carbs as it runs so well on a single. I have the original head and some other bits.
Then comes a few extra pounds and years on me and I spend most miles on my new road-sofa, I mean Goldwing.
This very roadworthy Bonnie just sits, season after season. I mean it looks great in the garage, but it really misses the road.
If your looking for a great riding & running Bonnie, this bike is waiting  for you.
