After a lot of work this week trying to get my baby running right, I've decided to just tear it down and go all out! That's what y'all like right?
After I realized I needed a new petcock something snapped in me and thought, let's pull the forks off and just see what's up. The facts:
'72 CL 350
Purchased in Nov 2009
Been sitting in my various yards sinceThe Good:
Previous owner was a pretty good wrench head
Timing is on
Points and coils are good (for now)
I'm the title holder
It looks AWESOMEThe Bad:
Cracked float bowl overflow tube
Left side carb won't idle (see bad petcock)
Left side pipe has no baffling in it.
Right side of top crown is busted
Wiring is crustyPlan of action:
New petcock, so there isn't gas everywhere...
New top crown
New mini speedo
Maybe mess with a new harness??? (will need help with that)
Make some money to pay for all this
Here she is as of this afternoon:
And the forks:
Is there anyway to salvage these guys?
So follow along as I get this Carolina Wren up to speed!
