OK, time for another minor update. Remember how that battery was dead? I tried adding distilled water and setting it on charge, but that didn't get too much of a charge. I went ahead and drained out the water and replaced it with fresh battery acid before leaving it on the charger overnight. I took it off charge this morning, rinsed the outside off (there was still a little bit of acid on it in places), and left it until this evening. I hooked the battery up to the leads on the scooter and something awesome happened...

IT WORKED

New battery acid was only $5 or so where a new battery would've been $60

My next order of business will be getting another key cut, getting the vacuum & fuel lines, and getting the oil changed. I'll also have to order up the new valve stems and petcock. It won't be too long at all until it's on the road
