Welcome! Nice job.
Yea, I read about the possible leaks. I will deal with that when it happens. For $80 I had to go for it. Stock tank was rusty and leaky. I could not buy the paint for the $80. I got lucky on the carb, I think. Its been a couple weeks and it starts/runs great. Also put a front tire on it. Still in it for about $700. Worth it for the fun Ive had working on it. May do some more updating to it, I am retired and need projects like this for entertainment.Welcome to the forum. Some of those aftermarket Chinese tanks tend to develop leaks over time.
Thanks. I'd have kept the blue but I had black paint in stock. I only have about 5 miles on it but it really seems to run well. It is a shame to live where winter gets nasty cold.I've been out all day. Welcome to the forum.
My '86 is the same color blue that yours was.
Congratulations on getting a 1st generation.
Wow, that is cheap. I was paying more than that for one bike 30 years ago. I will have to check on it.For my 4 motorcycles, it costs less than $19/month. That's altogether, so I can ride whenever it's nice weather. It doesn't cost that much at all.
I also have the full package with them. Maybe it will be reasonable.I have Allstate. But, my cars, house, & life are also with them. So bulk discount might apply.
