HAHA yes green motorbike looks good in photograph.
Both my motorbike are very photogenic.
Red and white motorbike is all original I am thinking, and everything works good.
Green motorbike has problems and has wrong parts:
Tank is CB tank not CL
Brake light only works with rear brake
headlight lo-beam doesn't work.
If you turn handle bars far left engine races.
Carbs LEAK if fuel left on.
These are the things I know when I buy Green motorbike.
OK.... So here is story of riding Green motorbike home after buying:
I will keep short. I hate typing!
25 miles to get home
So I know lo-beam is broke... I ride away...I turn on hi-beam so people see motorbike coming.
so I'm riding
i dont have license plate
i'm still cool
I ride less than mile and going downhill 40mph motorbike stalls.
I pull off at bottom of hill and try to start motorbike
(not so cool)
Lights off - electric start cranks but wont start
I k i c k.......I so tired now.
I think.......thinking hmmmmm. I think lots of things... too many to type...
Maybe gas is old and too low. there is gas station up small hill.....
I push motorbike up to gas station and fill up.
still electric start doesn't work....
I kick and kick....no start
no start at gas station is worse than side of road.
OK all or nothing...................
I push motorbike down hill....... pop clutch.......and YES!!! Motorbike starts!!!
I'm cool again
Story is getting too long for me (and not enough photo)
So 10 miles from home:
There is Bad sound....and funny feeling.......
Still riding, still cool....i think
whenever I stop I have to use both brake...only rear works brake light.
I go to stop...back brake pedal is STUCK...
I pull off road again.....
Bolt that holds rear brake stopper arm came out!
hub spun and bent brake arm and connecting rod...Not cool
(I need to buy new rear brake arm..do you have one for sale?)
So I am like james Bond and use key ring to attach parts so I can ride home front brake only...(I check front brake out GOOD before I go)
BLAH BLAH BLAH
I make it home...
End of story is: Green motorbike IS piece of krap for my project bike.
I have headache and tired...I go to sleep now
