I had one of those and it got stolen.

I'd rather help you avoid the hassle by buying myself. All those hours of tinkering with janky carbs, skinny tires and weird drive shaft stuff is too much.
You should just arrange for me to buy it.

Look at those spindly front forks, that tiny, unbraced swingarm (with shocks for 's sake!). You deserve better.

I thought mono meant 1 . Looks like a dual shock to me with a set of Mikuni flat slide carbs not much to know since they are new , and not the OEM Hitachi's .
