Default Hi from Arizona

Hi all!

I just bought a motorized Schwinn Searcher at a garage sale.

I don't have it running yet, water had gotten into the magneto case. I've got the magneto in the oven at 200 degrees right now!

The bike had sat outside for a few years, but looks to be in real good shape, even cosmetically. Compression is real good, even chirps the rear tire when popping the clutch trying to start it.

I'm not even sure if it's a 48 or a 66 cc.

I had a lot of fun as a kid in the '50's, when my dad bought my brother and I an Allstate moped. Hadn't had as much fun since on all the motorcycles I've owned, including a Royal Enfield Interceptor and a 900 Yamaha Seca.

I'm looking forward to slowing down, that wind gets brutal at speed.
