Mmmm, I'm aware that Betas parked at any angle piss fuel. You gotta fix?
(Corxn: Pat had an identical Beta, bought the same day same shop, but not this bike....)
So. I have this Beta, messing with it for education. What should I look at next? I think it is now a healthy bike; your post #10 makes a ton of sense.
You want to put your hands on it? I'll be coming over to San Y sometime this winter...
