I'd probably pick up this bike and build a trials bike out of it.  :)

           Wow. Me, too. If I was 20 years younger & it wasn't in Colorado I'd run right over & buy it. Great project bike. As it is I just hope to finish what I hope to finish on my AVL while I'm still able to kick it & swing my leg over.

Definitely a FEW hours to complete. My GB500 needed a whole lot less than that when I sold it. But age gets in the way now and then. Mine not the bikes! Nowadays I'm much more interesting in riding than wrenching!

           I still enjoy both; always have. I've got to know the details & the bits & pieces of everything. It seems to be incurable in me. Look what I've done to the AVL since January 2011. I could have just left it alone   :)    ;) I've already this morning spent even more hours researching & straightening out in my head (finally) this whole TCI Unit thing from when the first one was put on an AVL to the last one; first without, then with, and then again without the second & third connector & the little black spark delay box. That has driven me nuts since the beginning of this RE saga in Jan '11.
