    Default July BOTM

    Can't believe this months BOTM hasn't been mentioned yet. Nice looking '78 1000.

    Is the owner a member here? Please check in if so.

    Very nice indeed! And it's a one-owner bike!

    When I die, just cremate me and put me in my GS tank. That way I can go through these carbs, one more time!

    It's certainly got all the elements of the '70's look - pods, pipe, oil cooler, yellow wires, bikini fairing, stepped seat, and, most important of all, 1,000 cc's. If you rode that in '78, you feared no man. Nor Kawasaki.
