1974 suzuki ts185l, 700 miles.hadn't run for 30 years. pulled the tank and carb. heres what the carb looked like.

all jets clear, replaced one o-ring. bought a new $12.00 battery, and it fired up forth kick, settled into a nice smooth idle. rigged up a test tank out of an old squeeze bottle and rode it up and down my street. solid, tight, smooth running. damn it cool. tank wouldn't clean up with vinegar and nuts and bolts attempt so its getting cleaned and coated now. talk about a ride on the "way back machine".
$500.00
