good points. I just ordered the Clymer manual from eBay. I'll try to get some fresh gas tomorrow and clean out the fuel jets in the carbs again. I can verify there's spark, so hopefully that will be...

this is probably a stupid question, but my understanding is that the petcock regulates gas flow to the engine. If that's the case, how can I replace the petcock without gas spilling all over the...

just bought a 1975 R75/6.. now what?

I bought an airhead to ride when the weather starts to warm up. There are some quirks with it, namely the left petcock leaks gas and the bike sometimes dies while riding.

Is there a manual I can...

Is $5k too much money for my first airhead?

There's a guy local to me selling a very sweet 1972 R75/5 toaster tank SWB airhead. 29k miles, everything looks to be in good shape aside from the "dings here and there".

He's asking $5k for it....
