Lately I have had a hankering for a vintage motorcycle, Early 70's or old so I'll put this out there. This thing is a riot to drive and I'm in no rush to get rid of it but it would be nice to free up a little funds for another toy.

The specs are a rebuilt L20B with high compression flat top pistons. Racer Brown cam,A87 cylinder head, Twin SUs, MSD backed by a 280zx 5 speed. Full coilovers and swaybars. Polished swastikas and new Falken rubber.

Its a pretty solid car, a few little rust areas but nothing terminal at all. The passenger side front fender doesn't bolt up at the bottom but could be fixed pretty easily. It has an electric fan that is kind of weak so the temp creeps up if you are sitting in traffic. Once you get moving again it cools down fast. I drove it 180 miles round triup a few weeks ago to the Mitty where it one the soul sucking japanese appliance award.

Some tire shine that got slung on the rear quarter.

First mod was the GRM sticker:

Ugly steering wheel and big nasty tach.

Comes with new door seals in a bag and new bumper brackets.

One of these days I'll move cross-country just to be able to jump on opportunities like this.

Right. $2014 obo OR a vintage bike. I like goofy. So a clean Royal enfield, Honda CD175, Yamaha r5, or turbo 80s bikes.

I think I'll wind up in a shallow grave if I pursue this...but are the GA tags an accurate indication of location? If so will it survive a trip to Columbia, SC on the interstate without devastation?

It's a good thing I'm not on that coast anymore. Another "Look what I bought" and I won't even get to sleep as comfortably as the dog.
