Well, it runs.
After re-rigging the wiring and making a few more adjustments, I got ‘er to fire. She actually runs pretty decently, from what I can tell. Strong idle; no visible smoke.
But riding the thing is way down the road.
No brakes, for one.
Rear caliper seized and removed. Front calipers dry as Barbara Bush’s bush. Hasn’t been fluid in either for years.
But the immediate issue is the absence of the return (pull) cable on the throttle. Makes for all kinds of fun when you rotate the grip!
And that’s at idle.
Now for the other thing:
Donations are about 40 percent off with just a few days left in the month. This is not sustainable. I’m not bitching; no one owes me a living. But if I can’t make a living doing this, then I can’t do this. It’s just that simple.
It’s been a really bad month but there are still a few days left.
If you want EPautos to live, please help keep it alive. Your support is critically needed.
