This comes at a good time for me. I've spent the past 15ish years going through bikes regularly; buying, selling, trading. Mostly finding bikes in need of love, giving it to them and releasing them back into the wild. However, lately I have three bikes I love, that all run well, and tickle my fancy very well so I've been bored with nothing to do. SWMBO put the law down stating no buying any more bikes. This gl neatly sidestepped that rule by being both free and family. So now I have a nice winter project. Plans for the bike are to put a lot of time and effort and not much money into it, and once it's running right maybe yank the sidecar off my inop Dnepr MT-16 and install it to the wing. I also can't get rid of the single carb fast enough, I honestly don't think some bubba with a welder and an idea can say that putting a carb from an even older car on the bike can outsmart a bunch of Japanese engineers with slide rules and meetings. Granted it runs, and even starts pretty dang fast, but I still want a set of stock carbs on it.
