    I found wes cycles when I overhauled my 750. Great fountain of knowledge. Great prices and super inventory. He's in s Florida. Wes saved me a bunch of money and always answered the phone.

    I've often thought about heading down his way for getting some work done on my '72, but figured it would cost an arm and a leg by the time I was done. :D

    How long ago did you overhaul your 750 ?

    3 months ago. Did it thru the mail. He did the cylinder, I did the rest. Extremely helpful on the phone.

    wow, I think back to 74, when I rode the 1st bike bigger than my little Yammy 100 Twin Jet. My future girlfriend's brother had me come over to start his 750 Commando for him (busted leg). Now, I weighed all of 135lbs then, 5'-6", but I knew a bit about kick starting a bike, mainly get it on the compression stroke, and follow through! I got the kickstarter in the right position using the comp release, got up in the air and came down on the kickstart with all I had! Took a few tries but I started it!! He told me to ride it, which for me was weird, left foot brake/right shift, 1-up/3-down, REALLY hard clutch lever pull. I managed to snub it a few times but I started it each time.
