Yeah its a 650 T120, but I changed it from a 4 speed to a 5, all the internals are ballanced and polished, nothing hot inside there so I am hopeing for a reliable engine. New carbs, new head, pistons, con rods you know how the list goes.
You could buy a nice bike for what I spent getting that engine back together. She is going to sound so sweet when she fires for the first time, I'm going to film it for prosperity Laughing Rolling Eyes cyclops

so that's a Bonneville motor, right? or is it from one of the other models? (dunno my english stuff really)
I heard they change gears better with the 5 speed on there instead of the 4 speed.
My bro-in-law has a bobber with a 650 bored out to 750, but it has the 4 speed - when I rode it, it crunches into 1st, and goes into neutral when your changing from 2nd to 3rd, things like that.
as long as it doesn't leak too much oil...!
i think will be reliable enough. elec ign?
do u have to brake with your left foot? i got used to that pretty quick. had a 500 speed twin chopper back in the 90's for a while.

Rear brake is disc so moved to right side, gear shift is suicide so easy too put on the left. Can't decide where to put the clutch, foot or on the shifter? Want clean bars, no leavers so have come up with a tricky idea for the front brake Cool
