1990 El Ninja 750

I live in a very rural area so I built with range in mind. That is why I decided to go with lithium. I don't think I could have gotten the range I needed with lead acid. As we all know lithium is more expensive and somewhat more complex but I am glad I spent the extra money to go that route. My only regret is that I scrimped on the doner as I had to spend alot of time and money to get her into shape.
