Well it looks like the bike is going to be a bigger project than I had hoped. First of all I find out that there is still a tank of gas in the bike, gas that is 15 years old!! I was pretty nasty when I drained it out, I'm sure I'll have to rebuild the carb and all the fuel lines.
Then I find out that the piston is completely locked, so I spent the evening taking the engine apart and trying to dislog the pistion...after an hour I was successful. Now I'm having to work on the piston so that it will fit back in the engine, it's not scard, but it just seems to have expanded.
I have a feeling this will be a long journey for me and this old bike...
