Yep, would have to be the TA, all the other 2 wheeled toys are pedal power nowadays....

I wudda grabbed it but for a flaky TPS on Tigger.
It's no fun if the idle stays @ 2300 rpm, but when it decides to jump to 3600 all of a sudden it makes curves extremely exciting :eek

Found out I still have fairly fast reflexes on a VA ride a couple of weeks or so ago

In before the Brucing! Wife asked if I wanted her to take the kids for a bit. Who am I to argue?


Next tag to follow by tomorrow. Running out of daylight.

It was the Loray Mill in Gastonia.

I found it on Google with only the clues given.

I was just leaving to get this when I saw it had been grabbed.:(

I should have left it for you. Had an electrical gremlin on the way home. Unless I figure it out tonight the next tag will be real close to home.

You wouldn't be the first person to tag your own garage or place a tag from a trailer. ;)

On second thought, you wouldnt happen to want a 73 CB750 cafe racer, would you?

He really does do incredible work. I drooled over a number of his rebuilds as well until my stars aligned and was in a position to snag one.
The cafe bikes are really cool but I'm limited to one for now and have no desire to let go of this one.

Nice Grab.
I was at a loss too. I did not get the connection of the old Firestone slogan until they posted the location.

What electrical issues do you have?

Yeah, I should have posted the location, it took a bit of googling for me to figure out. I never make it to Gastonia.
It looks like its the beginning of a CDI going bad. Like a moron I don't have a spare though it is a known thing to happen on these bikes. I just placed an order for 2 (replacement and spare). I'll see if its acting up tomorrow so i can sneak out to get a pic up here.

If it is anything like the one I had in my XR650L, try heating it up with a hair dryer. The cold makes a bad connection worse.
The XRL CDI wasn't cheap either. Hey there is a guy over in the XRL thread (in Thumpers) that repairs the XRL CDI. He might be able to repair yours for way less than a new one.

Good luck with it though.

Thanks, I'll look him up to see if the bad one can be made into another good spare.
