It's Alive! It's Alive!!

What a day for the old beast to come back to life. Yesterday my bike that has been dead for the past year and a half came back to life yesterday. I am so excited. The new motor runs really smooth and strong. I need to do a little adjusting of the carbs because it is running rich, but she is alive.

I wanted to thank all of you that have helped me through this process. I appreciate all your help and encouragement. I think my wife wants to thank you all even more since now I will not be taking up the whole garage to work on my bike.

Good on ya mate. I`m glad to hear the old beast has been resurected. Down there in Utah`s "Dixey Land" you can probably ride year round, eh?
