I have a 1976 Penton175 cross country. I have engine bored to first over, new piston, pin, head gasket and base gasket. I also removed clutch, cleaned plates flushed crankcase with ATF and repaired some wiring. Also cleaned carbs, new pet clocks. Runs great. Needs silencer, new rubber and speedo. I have pictures on ADV rider under two smokers. I put just a few miles on it and it runs great. I also. Have an extra gas tank for it that is in great condition. Also have the green 125 plastic six days tank (plastic) that is in great condition signed by John and Jack Penton in 2015. I am asking what a reasonable asking price might be for the motorcycle. I restore motorcycles but Jack Penton said not to restore it but make sure it is mechanical trustworthy as. Some may want to Vintage race with it. Thanks for any comments.
