Another project:

Here is the new project. An 85 or 86. It has a popping noise when engine is running. I believe that it is a rocker arm that moved out of place and the valve is not openning. Anyways I will know more when I get it home. It set me back 500$.

The engine looks to be black, so it must be an `85, no?
What is the displacement marking on the cylinder just above the oil filler hole?
`85 would be 0.699 liter ? or an `86 is 0.749 liter?

Is the stars and bar paint job a statement from Johnny Reb, or the colors for local high school footbal team?

Nice! Do my eyes deceive me, or is that a Mustang saddle on that bike?

I am going to drop the back. I am going with short shocks.
BTW the engine sounds good. I am going with stock pipes and air filters. It will be a one seater.
