He is pretty pissed now with a recent issue.
Haven't heard the full story but it has to do with his old boss checking out the bike and revving  it to redline like a jackass while it was parked and in neutral. He said he rode it home, heard a weird noise and his back wheel seized up near his place. Hard telling what bearing is fucked or whatever else happened.

My neighbor tried to do that once when I got my bike. I understand wanting to hear the bike but it's fucking 35 years old! Give the old gal a break! I made him stop pretty abruptly. I rode away right after that and we haven't talked since... Awkward.

Damn, yeah I can't think of what that could be either, wonder if he seized something inside the case. 

I will say that seeing the leap in technology from a 75 cb360 to a '90 k100 makes me want to go out and buy a 'modern' bike.

When gauges start lighting up and being great in all there digital glory, it changes things. Rode a friends 07' Ninja 250r and other than feeling like I was riding a moped, it was nice to see the gauges and have a radiator on such a tiny bike.

same thing happened to my bike last year, the wheel just suddenly seized up. took me feckin ages to diagnose it but after stripping down the entire engine i found that the big end shell of one of the pistons had smashed to pieces and jammed it up. tell him to check for metal fragments in the engine casing

Electronic gremlins have been destroyed, went for a ride today and everything feels good.  The throttle bodies need sync'd but the new tires and suspension feels really great, its time to get rid of that seat, do a general cleaning and maybe do a little painting.

The fun part starts now :D

Nice of you to say, thank you!  Hopefully I can make the bike a bit more special without mucking it up too badly  :o

The bike's looking great man, keep going! :)
