The folding pegs have an 810 code so wetre probably a legal requirement in the US.
Even then the passenger pegs were still solid on US bikes, I think.

Somehow I have ended up with a NOS set of rigid pegs and have always wondered why this difference exists. Any ideas?

Making some progress finally!
My initial impression of the compression was incorrect- it's actually good only on the left side. I found zero on the right and figure the motor must come to pieces for inspection/repair of the head. Most likely a bent valve.
Found the exact ignition key on eBay a while ago!
I need to source a gasket set.
Also looking at going fully electronic- ignition, regulator, and lithium battery.
Any sources recommended?
