The Elite, its a bit beat up, but its got 23k on it.





The Helix, as it was when i got it. I don't know the story on the paint job, but it had to go.



Helix after the repaint.




And its reason for being dead.

Also has a knocking rod.

Bandit,
Any new discoveries on what order things went wrong with your Helix?

(I looked on the other board but didn't see an update)

I figure the burnt valve is from me running it too long with the carb boot broken. As for the rod, that has to be for poor service on the last owners part, the first thing i did when i got it was change the oil and have changed it about 3 times since owning it.

Funny, if you threw a rock off that overlook at the willamette falls, you might just hit me on the head. I work at the papermill right below there. Just dont hit my scoot parked in the lot. Also a SWing!
