Thanks for the warm national welcome. I know some of ya is kinda cold right now though. Im in the northwest and we had a little snow over the weekend but its gone now. Iv been riding since i was a kid and like you it is just in the blood. Freedom coupled with excitment and tinkering around with your machines is the american way.
After browsing this sight and looking around i decided i wanted a project bike. I knew it was gonna be a C or M50 but i had to wait for the right one to present itself. After 5 months of searching this M50 popped up less than 40 mins from my place on craigslist. Absolutly perfect for what i was looking for. 2600 miles , hadnt been started in over a year , The bikes battery was dead and it was outside with plastic over it. The fuel was as nasty as the moss and mold growing on it. It also had fallen over with the complimentary broken clutch lever , mirror , turn signal and real nice baseball size dent in the tank. Other than that the bike was basically brand new. After a thorough detailing along with getting a cup of water from 2 gallons of fuel from the tank and new battery the bike ran like new. I put about 1500 miles on it last summer and now its time for modding. Will be posting in the mod thread shortly.. Again thanks for the welcome and may the 2 wheeled gods treat you all well..
