My friend had one of those. Damn if it did not have ball bearings in the steering head. That of course made for a nice detent - self centering steering feel as the bearings were hammered :banghead
The bike was durable though. He threw it 300 feet over a cliff and it still ran afterwards, even after being dragged back up the hill by a tow truck cable. Cosmetically it was a wee bit worse for the wear though :lol
The bike itself was a comfy plastic covered turd. My similar vintage Ninja 750 outran it :devious
