BTW... The tank has been sealed and the liner looks like it is well bonded. I plan on using ethanol-free gas so that should help with any gas tank problems.

If I do plan on getting real serious with riding trials, I'll put the widest allowable foot pegs I can. I've ridden enough dirt to know this is a wise decision. It's just that I'm old enough to where I have enough body pains and don't heal very fast if I get broken, so I don't think I will be a serious competitor.

Before I do anything else I need to see how well the engine runs and I can't check that out till next week, when I get it back from the show. In the end this bike goes back to Dave, the guy I built it for. I know he's itching to ride it.

I'm already thinking about the two more bikes waiting for me to build, a 1966 Suzuki Bearcat and another 1965 Bultaco Matador.
Life is short, live and enjoy it !!!
