So I asked, and you have spoken. Well, three of you, anyway. So for my 40th birthday Mrs. melville got me this: She did it because she knew I wanted a bike but was too much of a responsible husband and father to actually go get one myself. She also had me sign a contract stipulating that the bike would be restored/refurbished, I'd take the MSF course(s), and no women on the bike other than her. She likes to have control, and I'm mostly OK with that. Note also that there are no carburetors mounted--they came in a box in a zillion pieces. Two and a half years later (August of 2009), after two VW motors and a shoulder surgery, I got a carb rebuild kit and put them together and got the bike running so I could evaluate the motor and chassis before I took it all the way apart. Looked like this: I put about ten miles on it, verified compression, observed leaks (PR tube seals) and then it came apart. Disassembly post to follow.
