This is what I did today. I found this bike a few months ago when someone wanted me to fix it for em - I did, but fell in love with it.
When he showed it to me I said "is thie Andrew bait?'
Took a while to rebuild his carb without carb cleaner, it was full of 15 year old gas, but we did and he was stoked to hear it run. Didnt think he would ride it though.
I called the dude - he's had in since 77 and he was finally ready to let it go, as long as it stays mine and i keep it. Thats not gonna be an issue.
I love sparta's, but I REALLY love the black and chome ones , and in particular the 1977 models that have the huge headlight and the speedo off to the side.
This ones a rocker, but she's slow as shit, i need to put an unrestricted pipe on it and do a some more tinkering.
Tank is like freaking perfect inside.
