When I bought the bike, this was the funky kick stand:


Got an original kick stand on eBay, painted it, got a new spring, too:


This tab was welded on by a gorilla:


Kick stand won't fit over the tab:

Lookin great Ray. Don't get to far along without getting the airbox in. You have to take the shock loose and maybe take off the rear wheel to get it in. Trust me...........I know.

Scooter

I'm the fool who started that premix thread.
(seriously, some good posts and info in that thread)
I used Klotz Super Techniplate, 80% synth 20% bean oil, 32:1 mix. Fired it up, NO smoke boiled out, had me worried, seems wrong, ha!

OK, so you got the humor in my post...
Wish I could have heard it fire off!
I still have close to a full gallon jug of modern day Blendzall.
I fire the DT1 up once in awhile just to sniff the exhaust!
Congrates!!
