lmm4g's 1979 special

This bike sat for 10 years and then I bought it in march of 2007.
This bike is 95% original. including paint.  I am the third owner.

It has original mirrors, handle bars, highway pegs, seat, back rest, carb and everything else.

The only thing that is not original is the exhaust pipes. It has two duals which made this bike a very odd bike and a collectors item. Bike has black paint with gray on tank and a gold pin stripe.

This bike gets 40 mpg easy. The oil has been changed less than every 1000 miles, it still has points, I never changed it over to electronic ignition. This bike runs and drives like new, everything works fine.
