Cartwheels for the ET3

This one wasn't imported into the US, so it doesn't have the big, DOT-regulation turn signals or a battery. These are good things since that eliminates some electrical issues.
It's running (check my Flickr for a short video of it running), but it does need some TLC - new clutch plates, new bracket for the exhaust, new tires, etc. - but nothing major.
I can't wait to ride it! And now I'm thinking about the Corsette. I was so jealous of my friends who did it last year! But at the same time I'm a little worried about doing damage to the bike - man, am I getting ahead of myself!
