Yes. It was called the GTE (E for electric) and also came with twin discs on the front. I had a 1975 model - it came in metallic green. I bought it in 1978. I actually removed the starter because it was humongous and heavy, and kick starting seemed to suit the bike. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how well the bike handles. This is a pic of the model I had.There was an electric start option for this bike. It was "CHAIN DRIVE"! The option added 40 pounds to the bike.
