History
I'm the 2nd owner, basket case from a retired co-worker who was the original owner. 13K original miles. Ran until sometime in the 80's, then sat in a barn for many years, was totally disassembled and boxed up. I got it about a year ago, and began the jigsaw puzzle assy!

Also got a 1968 T100C "parts bike" with a matching S/N motor along with it. This can become a second restored bike in the future!

Modifications

Drivetrain
Cleaned up the rims with aluminum foil and chrome cleaner, installed new bearings, tires, tubes, brakes, everything. Should be ready to go.
Interior
Engine is mostly there. The oil tank got gummed up and most likely starved the pump, causing the rod bearings to be damaged. I'd guess this it the reason the bike came off active use..
Audio
Rebuilt the front forks complete.
Wheel and Tire
Harness is rough, planning to replace with new. Will add electronic ignition, only non-stock thing planned for the resto.
