Thanks. I figured out how to start it and got it running. The compression is pretty high, and kicking it over is a bit tricky. At first the carburetor was flooding, but it's not now. I still need to fix a lot more. I took a ride up in the woods. It was a blast, I can't wait to fix a few things and ride it again. I'm still looking for idea's to make it even more trail ready.
