I bought this bike last year (2004) off ebay from the original owner. The bike had 4800 original miles and was all decked out for touring - windshield, floorboards, and shoei hardbags were installed. I don't think it ever toured.
Now it is my cafe/vintage racer project. I'm beginning to plan any mods carefully as I think I would like to race with the VRRA sometime in a year or two.
Currently the bike is mostly stock. Mods include clip-on handlebars with a ZX12R master cylinder and brake lines, Vance and Hines 4 into 1 exhaust, and rejetted carbs.
