I've just bought a 1983 175 1dl I belive. It's been messed on with body work wise. Just busy trying to get it running correctly first then il get some side panels and a better main headlight.

I'm happy with it. Just needs a little tlc. Little jobs that have never been done. Properly routing cables and adjust the brake and clutch etc. Goes well enough. Kickstart engagement has my foot sore. Engages sometimes other times it swings down and hits off the frame.. not sure what the fault is, missing teeth I presume.  Is there anywhere in aus that sells plastics for these bikes?
