One or two of you might remember my asking someone to look at a bike in Flagstaff last Aug. Even if you don't remember, I made the deal for a complete runner & a basket case for the tidy sum of $600. Delivered south of Indy, it was my excuse to catch the Indy Mile & MotoGP, so I was on my way. Fast forward to now, & I'm just now getting off me arse to get this thing going. Truth is, I went to the Fun 'n Sun STRA event at Hard Rock last weekend, & it lit a fire. But that's another conversation. On with the program. Out of the garage after six months. Look close at the grime, doesn't show so good here. The black gunk is fork oil that has been leaking for a decade or so. Parts bike. I haven't inventoried yet, but supposed to be a complete bike there. Lots of stuff in the blue box. After a half gallon of Simple Green, some tenacity,& lots of elbow grease, I ended up with this. [/IMG] Not a huge difference in the pics, I know. But in real life... Oh, where did all that fork oil go? Here. I'm on my way to replacing the fork seals & front brake pads. More to report & visualize later.
