In 1970 that was a BIG bike. I too lusted after this model from reading about it in my motorcycle mags. But I was only in 7th grade at the time. Could only dream...
Got one in the 80's (post above) and cleaned it up like yours. It ran perfectly for the time machine it was. I love your pipes and can't believe how good the seat looks.
Don't make my mistake and sell it anytime soon. Or if you do, please let me know!
Added: btw, I thought it was so cool that this 1970 model had electric start! I had replaced the kickstarter cause it was broke and thought I would need it, but the bike never failed to crank with the button after putting in a bit of work and parts.
