The 898cc air-cooled boxer twin is fed by dual Bing carburetors and produces 60 horsepower in stock form. A 5-speed transmission transfers power to the rear wheel via shaft drive. The engine was completely disassembled and all seals replaced including the head gasket, valve cover gaskets, rear main seal, push-rod tube seals, cylinder base o rings, and flywheel nose O ring. The carburetors were also rebuilt, valves adjusted, cylinder heads re-torqued, and drive shaft bolts replaced. The clutch disc was inspected and cleaned as only minor wear was found.

The factory supplied toolkit is included but no service records are available as the seller and previous owners have performed much of the work personally. A cold start, walk around, and riding video can be seen below.
