Sachs Eagle III

† CH∆D † /

scored! Paid $380 for it. Never seen one in real life, I actually really like it. In photos they kinda look bulky I find, but its super slender!

505-1D on it. The jug has a weird hole on the bottom left that smoke billows out. Its a factory hole. What is that? Pics tomorrow

Runs well. Alittle stuttery but its a smooth ride. Coaster brake is soooo fun! Reminds me of killing BMX tires every summer doing forever skids.

Im looking for info on stuff like fork oil? I wanna flush/rebuild the forks...couldnt find a thread on it. Will look more into that tomorrow. Help?

The throttle spins & spinds, hillarious.

Carb is super leaky.

Havent gotten to take out the tools & go over it. Will do tomorrow.

Any links/etc would be splendid.

Heres a pic of that leaky hole I mentioned.

This is riders left under the jug, basically 180 degress below the decomp.

I cleaned her up a bit today. Ran it in the field, runs well! Just smokes out that hole & alittle round the decomp.

Any idea what that thing is?

Re: Sachs Eagle III

It's the decomp hole. The decomp valve mechanism is on the top, the vent hole is on the bottom. If it's leaking you need a new decomp mechanism.
