History
I wanted one of these since I was 16 years old and found it several states away in 1978. The bike had apparently been raced as a hill-climber prior to my ownership. The 12:1 Specialoid pistons were a good clue as was the knobby tire at the rear. It needed a complete ground up rebuild. I first rode it in 1981--promptly earning a speeding ticket!

Images to come.
