Got a new project

My sister bought this 75 3 or 4 years ago thinking she really had something valuable, then she let her son, my nephew, work on it. She and he think he is a great mechanic, I disagree. Recently I asked her if I could deal her out of it since they were never going to fix it, she agreed. Went to get it yesterday and was upset with what I saw. When I first looked at it when she got it it was pretty much all there, not it's not. Was sitting with the valve covers off and spark plugs out. I let him know I was severely disappointed. I gave her $200, which was too much, she paid $700 for it and I told her then she got screwed.
This is how you unload a bike when you bon't want to roll it down a ramp with no brakes.

I've learned so much from my mistakes, I'm thinking about making a few more.

You could part it out. The mufflers alone will probably get your money back, or more.

Why ain't we ridin'?

But you have to ask yourself, will it be worth the time and money to get it back on the road.
