Re: A $450, 400 four - The Black Pearl

My first hurdle will be trying to get her to fire up for $0. Just using stuff I already got.

AND start the process of getting a title for her. UGH! :p

Thanks bro. Please add us to your "bookmark" and check in occasionally.

It may take a while as I cant put everything "on hold" for this bike.

I got other stuff going on. So pretty limited on tinkering time.

I really hope the excitement / torture of having it sit in my garage wears off soon.
So I can try to,re-motivate myself about the other projects I’ve already started and need to finish.

Re: A $450, 400 four - The Black Knight..ROARS TO LIFE.

No spark, Cleaned points and a static timed, she's got spark.
Replaced fuses w new.
Hooked up the battery pack.
Got a few lights.
Added some gas.

After 1-1/2 hours work. I was not expecting this.... :eek:

Rachel takes her turn twisting the throttle. ;D

The shit that ran outta the carb overflows before the sticky floats slowly closed up and stopped puking.



Hoping for a Saturday ride.
