I Think You Will Have A Nice Looking Ride With A Little Work. Is The Discolor On The Front Of Engine From Exhaust Leak, Or Crankcase Leak? Really Like The Colors. A Little Mount Work And That May Be It. Good Luck, Ron
The fellow I got it from said he bought it in Abilene Texas last year from A kid that had got into some trouble of some kind and needed the money real bad, he said he gave $200 for it and had only started the engine once in the last year, he said that it sounded real good but he couldnt keep the chain from coming off so he parked it with plans to make a project out of it, get it fixed up right and ride it in a parade down town sometime.
It looks to be exhaust leak, but I will completely take this engine apart and check the bearings ect. and replace any needed gaskets before I try to start and run it, and yes I think it will make a nice little ride when I'm done with it, thanks for the well wishes with it also.
Ride safe and have fun, God Bless
