I got it to run a few weeks ago and it ran on one cylinder, but had good compression.
Funny thing, I had the tank off, had just blasted the carbs with cleaner, I put the battery in and bumped the elec. start just to see if it even worked and the bike fired up, ran for a second and promptly died. It kinda spooked me.
Anyway, that's her. I think I'll call her Philly. (No affiliation with Philadelphia, I just like the name.)
Let me know what you think.

Are moderators able to completely eliminate posts/members, based on stupidity?
Bye bye, Adam. We've heard the last of you.

You fuckers are harsh. At least he had the good sense to not side-mount the license plate.
Hey Adam, welcome. We're sometimes mean to newbs. We expect a level of competence not always found on other forums. We want to like you, but not so much that we'll condone motorcycle butchery.

Haters gonna hate. Sorry to have offended you guys here with my own bike. I guess I asked for your opinions and I got them.

Man, this guy didn't even make it through Judey! Imagine if he had stuck around long enough for Geets or Tex to join the fray.
Well, another one bites the dust.

In case Adam checks this again:
I have one almost identical to this. While I don't personally care for the mods you've made so far, its not my bike, so its not my business to build it for you.
If you want back-patting, this isn't the right site. If you want to build a purpose-driven bike, or just want to get some good all-around helpful tips, this IS the place.
If you're happy with what you've got and don't want to risk negative feedback and don't want to field advice from guys who know what they're doing, I don't know why you'd join any forum. Let alone CR. :D
