Nice find, Dan. But I'd be pulling the heads to check the cylinders if it were me.

I love Eldorados. Recieved an e-mail earlier this afternoon from a friend in Toronto who just took delivery of a '73 from Texas. Didn't even know he was looking. Canadian police forces never used them, so they're as rare as hen's teeth up here. I bought the first one I ever saw in the fall of '80 and rode it across Canada the following spring. Finally saw another one about a year later in the Rockies. The owner bought me lunch...

Blah, blah, blah... Have fun, Dan. You've got a fine bike there.
