Finally Found Her!

Hello everyone, I joined the site about four days ago when I had found a bike and I wanted some insight on wether or not she was a good buy... turned out, that after I got home and went randomly bike searching on the internet I found this beauty, and instantly went down the next morning at opening and walked out with her keys in my hand 45 minutes later.

Hi, I missed your intro. Welcome and nice score!
btw, 2001 (the only year Honda did this) swingarm had no provision or boss for spools. I see you have them in exactly the place that a 2000 has.

Excuse my ignorance, but I'm not entirely sure what that means aside that something may be different or changed?

Well, I guess it means either that's a 2000 swingarm, or someone has modified it. It's just something I noticed. No alarm, I was just curious about that.

Nice catch. Looks to be in great condition with few mods which means you get to do exactly what you want. Good eye catching the spools, John.

Oh btw that un-cut undertail is worth some coin to some out there, so hang on to it and don't cut it
