    Picked up another project this morning from the original owner . All OG parts including tires and all spray bombed everywhere except the tires and decals . I put a low ball offer of $200 on it about a month ago then just forgot about it . Received a response on Friday . Older Gentleman uses the library for internet . He stated that his grandmother bought it for his 14th birthday . Kind of felt bad at first , but seeing that he lives in one of those oceanfront condos I'm sure he can offered another one if he wants one . monark.jpg

    He might be able to afford another one, but it'll never be that one.

    Great find.

    Did he spray paint areas that were rusting?

    I only find rusty junk, but the weather is bad here. Congratulations on such a pristine bike.

    Yes plus every thing else . The bike is a diffident 10 footer any closer and you see the rust he painted over Didn't bother taken any thing apart just tapped it off and started spraying , the front fender is pretty bad Looks like he left a battery in the no longer existing front light and it's missing the front jet ornament .
