1982 V50 Mk3
The time's come to sell the bike I got a couple of years ago in trade for a scooter. It was bone stock and wouldn't start. My friends had ridden with the previous owner and knew it had a rebuilt top end and ran great. After the trade, it was taken to my neighbor, Drew Smith's garage at his house. The reason it wouldn't start was because a wire had come loose from under the ignition key. He plugged in, it fired right up and ran great. From there he did everything on this bike for me to make it what it is. He also talked me out of all the things that would make it less than what it is.
The reason for selling is to build a Walt Seigl Motorcycles Leggero for myself.
All new wiring was put in from headlight to brake light with a MotoGadget M-unit handling all the electrics. A new charging system was installed this winter.
The back of the frame was cut off and a hoop put on by Ben Boyle of Bender Werks. Ben also straightened up the exhaust pipes, then put on Cone Engineering cans with custom brackets and mounts.
