Default Welcome to the Dark Side!!

People thought I had gone to the dark side when I swapped my HT for a chainsaw engine. Well, now I've really gone over the cliff. I was messing around the other day and a guy offered me a Sachs Prima G3 goped for a "song". You might call it a "barn find" ( term is grossly overused to sell a rust covered piece of junk) since it had been sitting in a shed for several years. My wife nearly puked when she saw it in the back of the SUV leaking tranny fluid on the beige carpet. The good news is the bike is nearly all there, the bad news is it needs a lot of work. Anyway,,I've been restoring this baby for several days now and am darned impressed with the quality of the parts. Sachs is German so you would expect good stuff, but these things are built just like motorcycles. There is a problem, though. I can't seem to get the thing done because I keep finding myself gravitating back to my motorized bicycles to ride or to tweek this or tweek that. Is the grass really greener or is my eyesight just getting bad? I'll let you know when I get the ped up and runnng. I will tell you this though. I have joined the Ped forums for help and it's a totally different world over there (is it really the Dark Side or am I blinded by my attachment to MBs)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
