Parts for this particular model are pretty hard to come by so I'm finding out.

My thought is to not do a full restoration,,,, clean it up as much as possible and use it once in a while. Maybe down the road I'll do a restore.

Finally got the engine to run without the choke on all the time. Taken it for a couple test and tune rides,,, braved getting it up to 50 mph!

Working on getting the tank cleaned out at this time.

This thing is a hoot!!!
if you want a real treat, ride it at night with the points cover off - that generator puts out a spectacular light show..

the b8's are tanks. should be indestructible. way under stressed motor...
