 I think I have the carb/jetting figured out on the CT70. I uncapped the bleed/injection port and screwed IN on the mixture screw. It acted like it was rich, but the plug didn't agree with me.
 Talked to Vince at T-Bolt and he said what I was describing was common and is actually LEAN on the pilot circuit.
 Starts much easier now and revs throughout the range. I see wheelies in my future! (And hopefully no more scabs or scars).

Adventuring further and further from home. This thing doesn't have an odometer or speedometer, and it's still a fresh-ish build, so I'm still a little skittish about getting farther away from home than I want to push it!
 Rode around the back roads near my house for twenty minutes or so. I swear, it needs a 5th gear. Or different sprocket ratios. It's pulling HARD and going plenty, plenty fast and still feels like it has more in it.
 I need to find a GPS speedo app for my phone and hook up my RAM mount.

 Back in June, I took the CT70/140 to Cyclemania in Charlotte. In addition to winning Best Vintage Modified, it was also shot for a story in Full Throttle magazine.

 I swapped back to the VM22 that came with the engine and now the bike is MUCH easier to start and pulls just as hard as with the bigger carb.

 I also got an invitation to show it at The Congregation Show in Charlotte last month. That was pretty cool.

I've been looking in the local classifieds almost every day for one of these since following your build.  They pop up from time to time, but rarely for less than 1200.  Seeing this little beauty again's just added more fuel to the fire.  What a doozy!
