Thanks, I'll ride it and get another data point. I had adjusted the valves before and not written down the info. I'll do that from now on.

The bike had been a daily driver before I bought it.

It has a very sad history. I think someone bought it new in '83 and let it sit forever. The logs I have on it show it had low mileage around 2004 and was well cared for. Well, except for the PPPO buying mirrors every year from knocking it over.

Then it was sold to the PPO who kept no records. I imagine it was wrecked under his ownership since now the paint is not original or matching. Also, the fairing is tweaked and the valve covers ground up.

The PO rode it as a beater for daily use. Now I'm the O.

This would have been a great bike if the PPO didn't hose it all up.

This is certainly a poorman's BMW. I can't afford head work so I really, really hope it is okay.

Anyone know a good cheap source for a rear brake disk?
