Here is the GEM I picked up... 6speed was a surprise:)

Runs tops after:
- Cleaning carburator with "Nasty Kleen-flow carb cleaner" man that stuff works wonders
- Used Evapo Rust for gas tank - two 6' long small gauge pieces of chain in the tank with 3 litres of the stuff.... shake, shake, shake... let stand for about 8 hours with a rotation and shake every half hour or so... and presto no more rust! AMAZING!!! Thinking about coating the tank but for now I will just keep it topped with fresh fuel.
- Fresh DOT knobbies and wheel bearing in the works now and then off to get it inspected for road legal use... lights are crap! going to look into LEDs to make the system a little more effective.
