Dude, most of the planes out of and into Gville have rubber bands

Turning into a medium-term project, hoping the end is in sight. Newest issue is the low compression. Needs a ring job, dug into it more and the piston is a 1 over (0.5mm) plus an icky cylinder and valves. Going to take the piston and cylinder to a machine shop and get them spec'd, then either go with new rings or a 1.0mm over piston.

It's fun getting a project bike that's been through 3 hands of "experts"; missing pieces, bits that are in the wrong places, and stuff that's plain wrong. Then there's the natural decay of a bike that remembers when the Mets won the series
