I'm new to this forum and I love reading these threads. I just bought a all original 1984 IT490 ( I should say stole ) $450.00. It wouldn't start no compression, Pulled head and jug standard piston with worn rings. No scoring in the cylinder so having checked for roundness. From reading here I'm putting Boyesen power reeds in on assembly. My only problem now is I need a kick stand mine is long gone and I'm to short to kickstart the bike without standing on the peg or a milk crate, and I think I'll look real odd carrying milk crate around on the back in the woods. So I can't buy a new one and there is one on ebay but I thought I'd try here first, Does anyone here have one that they would sell at a reasonable price? If so you can email me firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks again for the great thread and the Husky thread too.
