last night was a big night. i spent a good bit of time cleaning all the jets and other grimey spot on on the carb. somewhere along the way i'd taken off the muffler to start cleaning it. i had little confidence that the bike was going to start so i didn't bother putting it back on before kicking. i engaged the choke, and then with a few good kicks and a small splash of starter fluid she fired right up and probably woke the entire neighborhood.
next step is to get some more ethanol free gas and mix up some more fuel. i also need to work out a fuel tank. i'm leaning toward finding a brit tank from a b50 or similar that i can use a post mount. anybody have one lying around? i could also stumble across a blue bultaco tank from 79 or 80 but i think the bike would look better with an alloy tank.
no pics from last night, sorry.
