Welcome. How about some pics?
Hey The only pic i have right now is my profile pic I will get some more up soon.Welcome. How about some pics?
Hey thanks for the good place to start, It starts right up when you crank it over, I haven't noticed any carb issues as of yet. But i will be cleaning those i am sure they could use it. The bike was parked in 18 and it was a daily ridden bike. It has upgraded shocks in the rear already. The front forks could be serviced wheel bearings is a great idea as well as the head bearing as well. Would you know of a place to look for new wheels? Thank you for taking the time and giving me this advice.Welcome rider the most over-looked service item on a used motorcycle is the front forks followed by suspension and wheel bearings, you can buy all those things on spec at a local shop that specializes in such things. Your drum brakes can likely be improved with professional help and the first upgrade I would normally do on a bike equipped with steel hoops is to upgrade to aluminum rims in a size that can fit radial tires followed by replacing the rear antiquated shocks along with upgrade the steering head bearing and swingarm bushing to bearing.
Does it suffer from any carburetor issues, flat spots in the power band issues difficulty starting stalling hesitation shite fuel economy etc? I have some ideas on how you might improve those issues when you experience them.
Motorcycle scrap yard is the only place you will find the whole wheel at an affordable cost The rims and spokes is all I would be replacing given the age and model of the bike. Buchanan's Spoke & Rim, Inc...Would you know of a place to look for new wheels?...
