You smoked the starter, or the engine smokes once it started?
Is this a daily driver?
FWIW, the starter on my '74 R90/6 may be original, and if it's not it's at least 12 years old, and still going strong.
..and as a side note, I got 10 years out of a westco battery, and only replaced it because "damn I have this thing for 10 years.." It was still cranking fine.
Where the fuck...
Where the fuck is the bike?
You gotta be shitting me.
Where the fuck is the road?
