The gas leaked onto the engine in the sparkplug, backfired again, caught it all on fire as well as my leg, I was 6 miles from home and had to bike home holding the clutch with third degree burns on my leg. That was the end of Skannabelle 1.3 Now version 2.0 is almost up an running, need a new spark plug, fuel line, throttle cable (in the near future, not immediately necessary), and hand grips (also not necessary at the moment).
Very sorry to hear this Skasual, sux your leg caught fire. Hope you heal up real soon.
