Hi All,
I may have chance to get a complete California Mk 3 1000 1987, 
anyone know where can I get a Workshop manual , I have one for the V50,
 is the engine about the same but scaled up as far as general construction is concerned.

should be a good project 
Cheers 
Chris

You will find the "small block V50" engine and such a fair bit different to the Big Block which are the older Tonti 850-1000 and 1100 engines The Cali 3 1000 are a nice bike many parts are interchangeable with the other big block bikes ....

And if you are lucky enough to find one with 36mm carbs as standard you may be surprised at how well it goes 😎

So many bikes, so little time !

Fairly reasonable, prefer dual seat but that is purely personal apart from a few cycle parts it does not look too bad at all

I like it and far better than my heap of rusting poo. 

Careful you don’t take any bits of. I did, ended up a great big pile of rusting poo. Getting there though. 

Hope you enjoy it. 

Cheers

Hi Ken 
I agree I would like it with a dual seat ,I think I will strip it and try and produce something looking like a V7 Classic  .I have started a new post to keep it in one place as I progress .
May have a load of Cali Cycle parts to sell soon LOL .

Thanks 
Chris

That bike had a separate rear seat loads on e-bay but you can retro fit the flatter seat from a V1000 convert/G5 very comfy they are ..... The only real difference from T3 Cali thro Cali 2 and 1000-1100 are the cycle parts and brackets so look hard at older bikes ...in fact the gearbox is same thro to 1100 ...so frame is similar .... to be fair it is alot more cost effective to buy a working engine than chuck new bits into a knackered engine
