This is its first teardown by me.

Have one exhaust valve that has little adjustment remaining--assume it's either mushrooming, the seat is bad, or both.
Needs a timing chain and sprocket(s).
Since I don't know the true mileage, I want to inspect things pretty deeply while I'm at it.
And I need to do some minor frame mods so the engine had to come out anyway.

The bike is a lot of fun. Solid on pavement, stable on gravel, and the last ride before I tore it apart was on some powerlines and trails that were rutted, hilly, and muddy in the low parts.

It needs some fine tuning, but it does what I was shooting for.
