ebay has the rebuild kits for dr carb pretty cheap. or if you are close enough just stop by franks shop. he says he has all o rings in stock. pick up an extra set and throw in tool box... cuz you will need em again.

5 of us showed up for lunch today at Brownies. Good food, good fellowship. 2 of us were even on bikes :-)
Made it home ok, slightly warmer on the ride home (by a couple of degress) than going up there. Hope everyone made it home ok.

1974 Honda MT250 Elsinore...

Well, I made it to B-ton today to pick up the '74 Honda MT250 Elsinore that my oldest brother found in Indianapolis on FleeBay. Not bad shape for a 39 year old bike really. I will tinker with it to get it running and then park it until he wanders out from upstate NY to pick it up and take it home to ride. Production date of the bike is 8/73, which makes it a '74. The bike also came with the original title dated 04/03/74 when the bike rolled off the showroom floor for $860.00 +tax. How cool is that??!? Neat stuff that brings back a ton of memories...








...And this is what happens when the original owner did NOT use the correct tools for the job

Didnt really run into anything I would call actual rain, but mother nature was spitting here and there. Nice ride home, when I got home it is 42'F on my outside thermometer. When I left this morning, it was 30'F. See you guys next week, hopefully.

Subject change again...

Okay, I know this may not be motorcycle related, but it IS civil liberty related and I know pretty much everyone in here pretty much feels the same way concerning what's fixin' to happen in this country. Not sure if you guys (and gals) have heard anything about this so I wanted to pass it along just in case...

Local event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/456894617698254/
Local 2a Group: Hoosiers Walk for 2nd Amendment Rights

National event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/406312512782872/

When: Friday, Feb 8th
Time: 10a-12p (or until people decide to disband)
Where: South side of the Capitol building in Indianapolis
What: A peaceful gathering of Indiana's 2nd Amendment supporters.

Legal Details: (IANAL) We must stay to the public sidewalks (without blocking them) and obey the law (don't walk in the street; don't jam up crosswalks; don't block access to businesses; don't interfere with vehicular traffic etc). The Statehouse property is off limits to those possessing a firearm, LTCH or not. You do not need an Indiana LTCH to carry a long gun, however, it has been brought up that we may be in the vicinity of a Gun Free Zone. Knowing this, if you decide to carry a long gun, and do not possess an Indiana LTCH, you do so at your own risk.

Event Details:
The Guns Across America event on Jan 19th went off with great success, but had minimal coverage from local media. Hopefully, this event will obtain greater success and greater attention since the Capitol Building will be occupied.

Taking a cue from the Jan 19th rally, we will not be marching, but will instead be having a simple rally and meeting at the same location. Bring your friends, families, neighbors, signs, and dress well and conduct yourself in a respectable manner. Help us let our voices be heard.

Attendees are encouraged to carry their firearms. You may choose to carry any legally owned firearm you wish and are properly licensed to carry. It is requested that all long guns be unloaded and slung in a safe direction (given that there are buildings of multiple floors adjacent to the rally point, muzzle down is preferred). Sidearms may be carried as you normally would (OC or CC) if properly licensed to do so. Please ensure they are in a safe condition and properly stored in a holster.

As representatives of the gun owner community being put in the spotlight, it will be IMPERATIVE for you to set a proper example of safe, law abiding gun owners. This is not the time to show off and pass around your firearms as the last thing we want is a negligent discharge and someone to end up in the hospital. That being said, appearance is everything. It is highly recommended to wear business casual, or better.

Also, please spell check your signs.

Let me know as I have 2 qty 380 excs now, a 98 and a 99.
Good you are getting rebuild experience on the 300.
I may need to hire you on the 99 , much easier to kick over than 98
(compression difference for sure).
I need to test it out soon as the weather breaks, the 98 is minty fresh.
99 380 exc here:

98 250 sx:

98 380 exc:

99 380 rolling chasis:

Well I changed my oil and filter, and the air filter and box appeared untouched by fuel, but was unable to get the carb apart due to not having a garage and the fact that one I was using was dark dirty hole that would be all to easy to lose little bits in. So until I can get the carb apart to properly address the problem shutting off the fuel and running the bowl empty is gonna have to do I guess. Not having a garage in this weather is quite a pain.
