Howdy. I just scored an NU 50 Honda Express Iowa version, and it is going to need a ton of work. It will be delivered tomorrow, and I don’t plan on touching it right away. I intend to get you fellows(and ladies) help in formulating a plan of attack on this project, in order to get it serviceable and running in shortest amount of time. It’s going to need a lot of attention. I will give you folks the rundown as best I can.
I neglected to see if the motor was turning over, however the seller said it was free. It had the airbox off, but it seemed complete and present on the ground, and will be delivered with it. The front brake lever was frozen stiff, so I am assuming it will need a cable. It’s also going to need tires. And tubes. Battery is gone, cable ends for the battery are not present , and in fact it must have wiring issues, since the harness was mostly disconnected from the lights, engine, and everywhere the wiring harness could be seen, it was disconnected at the connectors themselves. The tank was rusty inside, and I’m assuming the oil injector was removed, although it could have been there and I didn’t know what I was looking at. It will even need fuel lines too. Jeez, the more I go over this in my mind, and on board, I am starting to wonder what the hell was I thinking?!?
But anyway, I am kind of at a loss where to start. So any helpful ideas would be appreciated. Thanks folks.
