Never Assume

I checked the vin numbers frame motor and title matched when I went to get this bike. What was not painted over was factory blue 79 parts. PO advertised as a 79 never a question


Got my title today and low and behold its a 78 do I ever feel dumb lesson learned check and double check . I checked again on the vin and sure enough a 78. Must have been maroon at one time? I thought that was the only color for 78? Never assume
Now the proud owner of a 78

That is a good thing in my opinion. Now you have to change your sig.

Just out of curiosity, what are your numbers?

Truth is I am thrilled wanted a 78 standard in 78 it was my dream bike. I graduated high school that year wanted one bad didn't have 2 cents to rub together think they were 3k as I recall might as well been 300k. I had an old suzuki I could barely keep going thats all had for years. Opened the title this morning felt like I got a new bike
