How shipped? UPS Freight 6 - 7 days after crated, 1-2 days to crate. Crate is 7/16" OSB and 2x4, strapped down. UPS truck is trailer, no outside weather exposure.

Other Info? Joe bought this bike from original owner, personally. In New York, deer, swerve to miss deer (did) ended up in ditch. Pretty much all plastic upfront destroyed but forks, wheels, radiator, frame all OK. Gas tank and cosmetic front damage sufficient to part out. Guarantee? - Engine will run. Suggests nice easy initial running, let oil seals, cases take new oil up. After that, guarantee is over. Total price delivered to Hondarosa? $1185. My plan upon receipt is to very carefully inspect 

  • bores for rust, water, etc, 
  • Check for all 5 gears selectable
  • Add oil
  • Perform comp test
  • Perform leakdown test
  • If good, remove from crate and install
