I'll keep it brief Dave, because its something I'm working on.....

No keys yet. I've replaced the ignition switch with a spare and have a locksmith looking for keys to match the original switch.

The Nuovo Falcone is fine - it was just a fuel lock and some crud in the jets. All part of learning its tricks and pleasure. Before it quit, it was running nicely at 55-60, so it will happily keep up with traffic on the roads I ride. That pleases me no end, as it means long trips to remote places are definitely a possibility. Can't wait 'till spring.


PS We must call it the 'Nuovo' Falcone (or NF). The Falcone is another animal altogether - and considered a real classic.
