Its Alive!!!!!!

i got my bike to start yesterday!!!!!! so i put new plugs in it and adjusted the air fuel mixture. so this proves that my wiring is right. lol i tested the charging system w/ my voltmeter and its working so thats another plus. i still have a lot to do to get it to run like it should. the slide for the rear cylinder isnt moving but the needle is so ive messed something up there. ill pull the carbs and give them a good cleaning and see if i can fix that soon. i need to get me a back tire and some leather for my seat but then ill be ready to go. i just figured id tell every1 that i finally got it runnin and ive put prolly 10 miles on it so far.... btw its only 31 degrees here lol

Way to go Justin! Some of us took bets on whether you would ever get it running after you posted that pic of the wiring that looked like a bunch of spaghetti on the floor! (I won't reveal if I won or lost!)

But looks like you'll get it running good for spring.

i knew i would get it running just didnt know how much time or money for parts it would take. ill get some pix of the wiring. theres only like 4 wires running to the front and the 1s from the ic box and thats it. ive been working intern for a dealership so i havent had much time to mess with it but i called in sick the other day and worked on it lol.
