crap, im not going ot have time for a ride tomorrow - i was thinking of doing this one early enough that im probably not going to want to wake up in time anyways.
david - there are a lot of little things i dont know about the batavus. today, for instance, i couldnt figure out what was wrong with my rear wheel, and it turns out (as mopedjay thought) the freewheel was destroyed. now i know, i guess. but still, i can tear down and rebuild the clutch and the carb and the wheels, etc. with my eyes closed. at this point, ive taken apart pretty much every part of the bike except the engine case.
the va is key, especially if you have the larger VA header pipe. we can meet up early at around 6 on wednesday, if you want. im pretty sure i could get there by then (though not 100%). or if you wanted to ride out here to jp sometime, i could show you then.
