History
Found this bike through Craigslist near Richmond, VA in 2012. The owner was selling it because it appeared to have "rev limiter problem." It was stuttering/sputtering around 5,500 rpms. Turned out to be that all three carbs had main jets that were all different sizes and way too big! I believe he referenced the Keihin sizes and put them in the Mikunis. This TB was already painted and chromed-out when I bought it. I put euro bars on it, bar end mirrors, hagon custom-built rear shock, hepco & becker crash bars, and highway pegs.
