Picked up the bikes today. The complete one goes to a silent buyer. I get the parts bike. Basically I get all the major components for my TSS vury vury cheap.
Here's what I get to work with. I knew it was seized, getting into this, but I didn't know it was this bad. Turns out it seized juuust below the exhaust port opening and the exhaust port was left uncapped and it was thrown outside. Plenty of dirt crust and critters in there. Cleaning it won't be so bad but I'm pretty sure that cylinder will need to be bored a size over once I get it unstuck. I'll probably let it sit in marvel mystery oil for a week or so then approach it with a mallet and piece of wood. The Amal carb has been pulled and is soaking in pinesol to be swapped out on the other bike for a mikuni.
The frame is rather rough too. Hopefully once it's chemical stripped and blasted, it won't be pitted. I COULD have asked for better but I make do with whats put on my table :)
