Nah those look to be 705 Shinkos, and they are more than up for the task.
The Shinko 705s were up to the task. The rider wasn't.
thats what i have"The rider wasn't."
Et Tu Brutus? See dirt, fall down. That's my mantra.
It all begins when it does.....until then you just ride the hell out of it "knowing" you have one of the most reliable bike models money can buy.I didn't frame this shot very well (glare on the phone screen). This bike's coming along. When you buy an old bike with even a few miles, you're bound to run into problems. I've fixed a major fuel leak, changed the chain and sprockets, and learned a few things the hard way. The better into shape I get it, the further I venture out. At what mileage do the fuel filter start to clog, the TBS go bad, the stator magnets shake loose, and the chudder begin?
