I had someone email me about selling said bike. Pretty sure it's an AT2. I wanted to get positive criticism on what looks correct and what does not. I'm not familiar with this model

Looks very complete even with the blinkers which are not common. Good start of a restoration or runner. Can't tell if it has the oem airbox or not, that's about it in a quick glance.

Is that an ignition coil hanging down on left side?

Did you see my thread about resurrecting Rick C's AT2 he donated to my cause?

If not...this AT2 is WAY more complete and deserving of resurrection!! It looks really orig and complete. Not a part out bike, it needs to be saved! The paint on the '72's fade just by eyeing them with our own eyes, so seeing the orig paint in such nice shape on yours is a bonus.

Allrighty Then

Yes, looks complete and one to buy.

That'll be the 12v electric start bike?

I've read here that popping a 175cc top end on was quite common. It wouldn't put me off buying the bike if it had been done here, but worth asking the question.

Thanks for the feedback but I'd still like to know what is the part that is hanging down on the front left side of the bike??? It looks like a coil ...

If you have a higher resolution photo, try posting a photo that's zoomed in on the area and cropped. Can't really tell what that is. Kind of looks like an automotive coil attached to the frame tube?

Using an automotive coil was a performance mod some of the magazines had articles on.
