I decided to start this thread now, even though the project will be done over a relatively long time. I bought this old beater for $500. It was totaled. The previous owner bought it and made the lights work and tuned the carbs. My goal is to fix it up and sell it. I have several other bikes to ride. My idea is to convert it to sort of a street tracker. More a conventional street bike. I am estimating the project will take about 6 months. I will be camping, riding and kite boarding on 3 of trips for about 6 months. So I should have the project done in about a year. I don't intend to spend a lot on it, or make it the perfect bike. Being retired, I need a project. Something to do when home.
