Hi everyone

I picked up this gem about a month back here in Maryland. I've definitely spent more on OEM new and used parts than the bike originally cost me (PayPal and ebay are just too easy). This forum has been a great plethora of knowledge and advice. I look forward to posting more pics as the rebuild continues!

Hi all,
       I recently picked up a 175J in total need of a strip down and re-build, I couldn't pass it up for $100.
I've been riding since before the "J" was new, so I remember the first time I saw one, as a 15 year old I was blown away.

So far I've stripped it down, blasted and powder coated the frame, swing arm and linkages, replaced all the bearings and seals, sanded and polished the plastics, re-covered the seat.
Here's a few pics.....
