Title: There, was that so hard?

This is how you write an ad.
Useful information about the actual motorcycle.
How it runs & rides.
What's been done.
What's wrong with it.
THEN generic information about the model.

Two questions:
Why is the mileage so low?
Why is the only picture of the right side the cover of the brochure?

The blue seems extra smurfy.
Is that true for all 90's or is it a result of Ohio corn?

"is that Ohio, Columbus?"

Paint looks original, just a lighter shade because of the camera.

Low miles because crappy Ohio weather and roads and lost interest. Unless you commute to work (like me) you won't rack up many miles just joy riding on nice weekends that rarely happen. Life gets in the way.

Looks like it was neglected for a for spell in a damp garage (once again Ohio) and then gone through by someone with who cared. A little surface rust is no biggie and easy to touch up. Overall not a bad bike or price for someone who just wants a decent CB-1 to ride and not a 100% showpiece.
