Well more like a shed bike.......
We heard about this bike from a co-worker, she was going through a divorce and mentioned that "his old bike" was in a shed and she wanted it gone. I asked about it and if I could have a look, that weekend I went out and did just that.... on her acreage there was several outbuildings and in the first one was the bike. She pulled the door open and I started to drool, I could instantly see the potential. Notice the license plate, last time it was insured was 1978.
I should mention that he signed the papers, she didn't just get rid of it from under his nose, and he had no problems with anything. We got it for free.
The mileage, 4960 miles. It's still new! (at least in my mind)
Here's what it needs..
- Carbs rebuilt, there is a bit of lead in them, but it was drained before storage.
2 mirrors, although, there 90% of one stock one on it still
Left side engine crank cover thingy...
The seat is a little hard, even though it doesnt have any holes or cracks in it.
Various seals and things I get to find out when it fires up.
Not going to paint, just gong to try and polish it first to see what happens.
The photos in the back of the truck is right after I washed it for the first time in many years, so it looks decent for sure.
It is HER bike, and she loves it, she'll be learning to ride on it.
