I`ve been out cleaning the pieces already. Damn petcock is all plugged up and the mice ate the air filter. Luckily the air filter is just flat. Easy enough to make one. Had to drill out a few bolts. So far just had to re-tap them. Still looking good, if I get most of it together today. The shock is still an issue.

Damn this is good. Let me know if any of my piles of parts could be useful for your pile of parts, Bob. They are almost guaranteed to be mice-free.

It`s going to take some parts scrounging to ever make it pretty again. Just trying to make it rideable with the parts I have. It`s been sitting here for almost two years. I rescued this and 4 other bikes from a 9 year stint outside in the weather.

You are doing noble work Bob, It always makes me sad to see old bikes rusting away somewhere. Get it out and ride it, (if it's a guessing game is it a Fantic?)

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

I did and I figured you could use the empties for your McGyvering. It must be nice living in a nice arid environment. My bikes get like that in the garage!

My dog almost got shot last night. I was minding my own business watching the paint dry. I had my usual friend in my hand.(Not the warm one!) I had cleaned the frame and cleaned up a few bad spots, primed, and was letting the last coat dry. Out of around the corner comes my dog with his broken chain. He knocks over the bucket holding the frame and his chain snags the frame, dragging the frame down my gravel driveway. There went my last three hours of work.
I was thinking to myself, the last dog I shot killed my neighbors chicken. This is worse! Right then the BHB (Short for women I love) drove up in her red truck. Dog got saved by the B.

Got going bright an early as Gordy got me motivated.


Have two problems. One really plugged petcock and one really screwed shock. I threw the petcock in a bowl of vinegar. Grabbed a pair of calipers looking for a shock. Ended up with a Sachs out of a 2001 Gasser. Just a few shims and it will be fine!
Came across a worn out Counter shaft as I was prepping the engine for paint.

Got side tracked with a trip to ups for Ebay. Picked up some two stroke for the weekend. Looking better today.

Good luck, bruddah. Heading down to Roswell in W.W. very early in the AM. Hope to see that scoot make life very difficult for NMTrailboss, Gordy, Grizzz, Big Al, and the rest of the Semi's this weekend.


BTW, I am bringing the LA Sleeve TY350 cylinder sleeve down to Roswell for you. Make me an offer I can't refuse....
