A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

This was this morning.





It is a 1990 Fantic 247. I was hoping to ride Semi this weekend. Get ready for our vintage next month. I figured those new `Beta`s` would give me a good run for my money if I can keep it running!!
Small detail. I have to find a rear shock and Mcgyver an intake manifold as we are leaving Friday!

This is a good example of why you don't drink and e-bay.

Hate to tell you Rusty that pile of crap has a lighter clutch pull than your `13.

This is very nice, I hope you get the bike sorted so quick ... these in comparison to twinshock bikes around ten year newer models have some additional technical features than can be time consuming to fix,
here especially the spare part question.

I recently also acquired an air-cooled youngtimer, (BETA TR 34 Jordi Tarres Replica from 1988) and found out that it is easier to find parts for most twinshocker then for this model, took two month to get most parts from all over Europe.

The riding experience is cool too, the lightness and the more advanced riding position with still an engine that has some adjustable power output but can deliver also quick power if necessary.

Sadly these bikes are often very well used and in first look have more the appearance of a pile of junk, (like yours as seen in the picture ). But when rebuild quite beauties in design and ride ability, (I 'am very addicted to any air-cooled machines, water-cooling is unnecessary crap in my personal view).

I press my thump for you that you will get this bunch of metal and plastic running in such a short time.
