Woke Another One From Its Winter Slumber
« on: July 13, 2020, 07:13:31 PM »
Tried to wake this up when I woke the others up but it wouldn't start. Dug into it a bit over the weekend and figured out the aftermarket petcock had some off positions the OEM didn't. Dohhhhh! Fired up on the first kick once I got the petcock in the right position. Warmed it up fully and then shot this video.

Super cool. Does it get much street use or are these mostly track toys?

Had the opportunity to buy one for a song 20 years ago, but I was young and foolish and passed. I feel old and foolish now. Beautiful bike!
