Had a friend weld the crack in the pipe, flushed the bottom end, rebuilt the top end with a fresh piston + rings, hone job, small end bearing, new gaskets all around. Rear shocks stuck, no rebound in front fork.. useless tires, laid it down on the grass once and decided it wasn't for me. Sold it for $400 to an old dirt rider who liked the old thumpers.
doh! if you find another one you'd like to sell for $400, i'd be all over it.....
