I have owned a fair number of airheads over the past 12 or so years,done a bit of engine work, tuning, etc. never owned one of the /2 series. (I like to ride). I have a chance to look at a '68 R69S. Owner has had it since 1980, it has not been running for the last 10 years. I have read a bit about the oil slingers, and their purpose. The present owner has never had the engine worked on, and has no idea of present mileage. Could I,or should I attempt to start and ride it while I ponder it's future. I am not sure if I want to tackle a slinger change myself, don't really want the $$$ expense of getting someone else to do it. Thoughts, Thanks for any input.
