Id like to kick the guy in the balls that put this nut and bolt where you cant get to it.
We could do this eBay style, say a gentleman's bet , if you wish to part with said terrible machine. I start the bid at say $200 , delivered with all extra spares and clean title.
Riding any motorcycle of antiquity, whether it be a genuine antique or was built yesterday using 1950's technology, requires a certain amount of appreciation for what it is that you are riding.I own several antique bikes (and cars) but the one I have ridden most is a 1970 Triumph Bonneville. Over,somewhere around 40,000 miles (hard to keep track because the speedometer keeps crapping out), I have had numerous on the road episodes including mufflers dropping off, fried alternator, thrown rod, dropped valve seat, etc.Fortunately, the more serious failures have happened close to home (Honey, bring the pick-up). While you're out on the road, the challenge of finding a piece of fencing wire to tie the muffler back on or, searching for some guy three towns over that just might have an alternator stator for a 1970 Bonneville (he did), and installing that stuff sitting in a field with whatever is available, to me, is all part of the addiction.If you want something that runs like a Honda, buy one. If you are addicted to antique machinery, like I am, enjoy the challenge.Andy
