1980 General Five Star toptank with V1

I will bring this back to Pittsburgh later on but for awhile it's gonna be at my brother's place in Philly. Picked it up for trade and literally havent touched it.

Typical P/O backstory including "me and my brother rode it all through the 90's then parked it when it wouldnt start one day, dunno what it may or may not need" ... I say they rode it hard though cause the signal stems and bottom side covers are missing and the front end obviously took at least one big knock. V1 complete w intake carb and pipe, 17" spokes, head and tail and the cool 5-star integrated control collars/switches. has fork/tank key, everything else is there cable and wiring wise, seat needs new foam.

Packing up the camping gear and a buncha hobbits this week reminded me how much i liked having a couple plain jane lightweights around so Im hopeful about trading this big meaty toptanker V1 blaster wannabe (albeit a project presently) for a simple mild mannered bone stock lightweight or part trades... trades in philly for now or pittsburgh later... 'specially runner and extra 'specially a rigid like:

Ciao square-post full rigid

Sachs rigid kick-braker (even a lowly 'B') sundancer hercules westlake

Motobecane Model 7

Zanetti C50 / Safari Fox

See what I mean? Maybe other comparable or interesting peds that ais small light barebones rigid runner?

would also consider a trade against a freshly reliably built running vespa polini speedcase points motor
