Super rare bike, only made 1 year, has the dual range shifters for a total of 10 gears. New paint on tank, all in all a sweet ride, only 20000 mi.

I tried to buy one once. I was curious how the high low trans worked out while riding.

The trans works great.. There is a High range for Hiway riding, and a Low range for curves, or hills, etc.  I haven't found a real need to use the Low range that much, 5th in Low is similar to 4th in Hi.  There is an extra shifter just above the standard shifter, and you clutch and switch this shifter to either Hi or Low, then use the standard shift to shift between gears within the range you've selected.  Frankly, it seems quite unnecessary, but it was kind of an experimental bike, so, yeah, it does just what it's supposed to, I've just found the Low range to be geared rather low for me.  If I need help going up a hill, I just put it in Hi 4th Rather than switch the whole range. If I were doing the Dragon, I might put it in Lo for a while and leave it. The 2 ranges overlap quite a bit, it's like the 5 speeds kind of fit in between the other 5, so it's not like one range takes up where the other one quits.  Make sense? :3
