(sigh) I hate to say it, but I don't think this Valkyrie thing is going to pan out.

Let me know when I can swing by and take it off your hands. crossy.gif
1997 Valkyrie- Light Cutomization, but Too Busy Riding
1980 KZ1300- Bike's Haunted
1976 GL1000 (Yellow)- Behaving Itself Rather Nicely
1974 Velosolex 3800- Better Than Walking
1972 CB750- Learning The Joys of 4 Cable Carbs
1969 CT90- The Most Fun You Can Have on 90ccs.
1965 CA77 Dream- Needs a Full Teardown, but Complete

All advice I give is only valid until an expert corrects me.

That's some seriously good welding on those bars. Rare to find on after-market stuff.

I had one of those entice me into buying it this past November. I made the mistake of taking it for a quick test ride and that pretty much "set the hook". What a sweet machine. I would put a picture of it on here but have no idea how that's done.
It's in storage at the sellers' home and I'll pick it up in the spring.
And I thought I was immune to MBS....

Much better welds than stock for sure. Weird.
