MV750 Soviet Flathead Rebuild

Alrightly, Iíll try one of these things.

Intro:
My Russification started years ago; the spreading into the motorcycle world started with a Dnepr purchased years ago. I used it for a daily rider for years... then there were more. This particular story is about my MV750. For many a Soviet/Russian moto-fan, this model is desirable; produced in the 60ís at the Kiev Motorcycle Factory for the Soviet military with a 750cc flattie and all the cool military trinkets including differential 2WD with a locking lever for full time 2WD. One became available last year - I snagged it not caring about condition. Few days later, off to Colorado to bring her back to Kansas.

Wheels are not correct, the axe was mine and a few other things were glaring at me, but actually much more complete than I expected. The plan, get it running and ride it. Love the patina, no plans on changing that.

Next - initial startup...
