The bike runs. It doesn't run well, but it runs. And after finding out 2 of the coil wires were crossed courtesy of the previous owner, and fixing that, I'm sure it will run alright. I should have a report for you on just how well after Saturday if I can stick to the schedule I'd like to keep for this weekend. And even if it doesn't run well, I'll get it fixed so it does. I have nothing but time to tinker with this thing, so I am staying positive about being able to accomplish what I'd like to accomplish.
I definitely anticipate getting discouraged at some point. But what fun is having a project if you're not forced to reason things out? I'm pretty familiar with how project math works, and I know that practically nothing happens quite like you expect it to. But I think I'm Ok with that. And if it's a total flop? I'll part the bitch out. At least I'll be able to say I learned a lot in the process.
Oh and I'm relentless. But I'm sure you probably didn't need me to point that out
I may wait until better weather to take this one on, because it's hard to open things up right now with it being so cold and glassing isn't exactly something I want to do in a poorly ventilated area. We'll see... a mechanic friend of ours has a nice shop that he may let me use for the stinkier parts of the project, so who knows when I'll do it. The wheels are definitely turning though, and I have plenty of other things to do to it in the meantime!
