Looks like a fun project! What a little rocket it will be when you get it all tweaked up. Are you going to do a restore or just repair it to good safe running condition?

Beautiful little bike. That puppy is going to be a blast around town!

Congrats on the Duke! They're a really comfortable ride - a mate of mine has a 906 from new, and he's done some long trips on it (no luggage - I carried it for him........ ).
I've driven it around city streets two-up - no strain at all - you'll love it!

Cheers, StClair

Talking Re: damm did it again i should never look at craigslist

well progress report got all of the brakes serviced, electrical system checked out.inspected & cleaned forks shock & wheels.not bad one rear wheel bearing needs to be relpaced soon,drained & inspected fuel tank looks ok,chain & sprockets should arrive today. my brother will stop bye this weekend and we will replace the timing belts.& take a look at the weber carb.
the biggist setback so far has been that the oil pick up prescreen is damaged it broke off inside the crankcase.i managed to fish out the broken part.but the new one has to come from italy
