A poorly restored bike that has not been rebuilt properly can often cost as much to make into a perfect classic
bike as a basket case that is complete. Always be careful buying these bikes, as if the motors are not rebuilt by a
professional, it just might be a hand grenade ready to drop a valve, chuck a rod or spin a bearing.
Always inspect suspension components, bushings & bearings for any freeplay, & that wheels spin freely
& done up tight. There's many horror stories from disappointed buyers, so beware.
