April 12, 2009, 02:14:25 AMThanks Cabo. I love the bike. Got it all sorted out and it runs flawlessly. Should run forever at this rate. 12,000 miles and the rear chain hasn't even required adjustment. Just now got it's first new set of ignition points and condensor, and the old ones still looked good. Why change over to electronic ignitiion? Just keep an eye on the oil feed cork and she'll keep thumpin until eternity.
April 10, 2009, 07:04:19 PMHi Tim, Bought it from a defunct Polaris/Victory dealer in Orland Park just off Harlem ave. The RE dealer on Ogden you mentioned is probably the one in Downers Grove which also also sells Urals and Vespas. They are a few blocks East of DGY Motorsports where I bought an Aprilia 100 scooter for my wife last Summer. Thanks, Karl .
