    Have a '75 honda scrambler with an idle problem. Anyone know of a good mech who knows these older bikes in the roswell/marietta area or fairly close?

    You should try asking this question in "Old's Cool". You might get a better response.

    Before I took it to a mechanic, I'd clean the carb with a soak in Berryman's B12 liquid after removing any rubber or plastic parts, spray out the passages with Berryman's spray, then replace the idle jet, needle and main jet.

    This is still open if anyone in ATL knows a good mech for older bikes.
