This is what your bike will have looked like originally


It was only made in Candy Red so if the logbook says Blue it has had a colour change.

The handlebars look original to me, that’s how the American styling was in those days. Obviously you can change them if you wish but you will probably need to change the clutch cable and both throttle cables.

I can help you out with used side panel badges.

It is an American import. In America it was/is standard to have the front indicators on all the time. The twin filament bulb is actually correct for this purpose as when indicating the brighter filament flashed on and off. As you know this isn’t a requirement in the UK and it is simply a case of disconnecting a wire in the headlight if you don’t want it. I can also probably help with a used indicator if you still need one.

I may also be able to help with a seat lock. What is your key number?
