It was a good time.
We are going to put just enough parts into the brakes and suspension to make it a bit more ride-able and run it just like it is..
Nothing like being smoked on your new 450F by a 35 year old air cooler  cheesy

My dad had an 84, and it was a handful for 5'11 165 lb. 15 year old Umberto.  I could barely stay on it, and man did it vibrate.  If I recall, the power band was more sensitive than a light switch.  Is my memory correct, or have I made these bikes worse than they are over time?

I can't tell you how a new one would ride and run.
This one has great bottom to mid power...
I have never checked the compression so I have no idea what condition the engine is in.
And, we are running a Air striker on it.
So it's so hard to say.
But it is very rideable...
