    Finally got the '70 120 down off the shelf after being up there for 8 years, and man was it filthy. After I washed the dust off, I decided it needed polished and waxed. Once that was completed, I reinstalled the Motorola radio and hubcaps. Oh, and shined up the tires a bit too! Only thing left to do is buy a battery for it, repaint the rims, 20200417_131432.jpg 20200417_131420.jpg 20200417_131402.jpg 20200417_131338.jpg and get it running.

    I can't tell you how many collectors contact me asking to purchase it or if it's for sale. Appears to be the only Motorola around that has the original four-legged deer decal on it. I think the highest offer so far was $475.00. Ridiculous!!

    Thanks Brandan. All original except for the motor. It was replaced by the original owner with a 14hp Kohler.
