Well this bike has been waiting in the wings for way too long now.
Bought as an ex-hill climb bike from the USA, it's one of the first 2500 450's built :-D
It does require a little bit of TLC :roll:
Centre stand brackets mashed from rocks, sidestand bracket broken off and an various brackets welded here and there etc.
But the bones are there.
Engine turns over with good compression and supposedly has had performance work done.
I've since sourced most of the required bits, so hope get moving soon

Coincidentally, I was watching the dueling banjos segment of Deliverance earlier today. Can't relate that to Tassie of course.
