I finished my winter project the other day and fired it up for the first time. Not entirely stock but a nice bike (only 62XX miles):

Great to see a clean, mostly stock F3!  Love it!  So other than the pipe, what isn't stock?

Mainly the exhaust but also an oil pressure gauge, steering damper, rear shocks and chrome gauge covers.

Ah. Zooming in closer I see the shocks, steering damper, oil gauge and gauge covers.  Still, a super clean looking original!

What a beauty!
How much HP were they making at that point? Very different carbs than my K3
I like the exhaust on it, seems to go well.

I've read 58hp at 8,000 rpm, about 10% higher than the K bikes (weighs 10 lbs more than K bikes too).

They said the K0 was 67 or 68. I'm not sure if that was true or when it started to drift down. Maybe around K2 time.

Upgrades that are almost 50 years old. Had a ride today about 100 miles. These bikes are so durable you forget how old they are.
