It's only spending more time in my garage then it is on the road. I really wish I had the money for a new Tomos, they're not the prettiest things or the most reliable, but they should RUN for the most part.
I love the old motobecane stylings, but I'm no gearhead, I DO believe a man should be able to repair his own vehicles as best he can - and don't get me wrong, I like working on it. But I like riding it more than I like working on it and I'm sick of being embarassed in public by a bike that only has 3000 miles on it.
That said, when it died the following happened: I had a big drop in power, and it started really sputtering - basically, it felt like it was only 'catching' and running on a few strokes (i.e. not burning most of the fuel)... it ran at maybe 5mph for 20 minutes or so as I tried to get home, then it died completely. What might that indicate?
I swear I'd think it was some problem with the spark if I wasn't getting good spark (and the plug has maybe 750 miles on it anyway).
