After the hurricane

Last year we had a hurricane that came through our town that caused a huge tree to fall and hit several cars and my bike. It destroyed my tach and tail light assembly and some how knocked my headlamp loose. Rip my seat a little and some other minor things.

I am finally getting around to fixing it back up. A friend of mine is going to give me all the parts that I need if I will do some simple wiring for him on his bike which I'm thinking is a pretty good deal.

Now to pull the surge tank and then the carbs and clean them and then hopefully in a few weeks I can be riding again. As long as I don't get around other bikers I am fine but when I go to a bike night it takes days to overcome the itch that can only be scratched by riding my bike.

Blessings!
Richard

Sorry for the bad news, but sounds easily fixable with some elbow grease and used parts.

Glad you're in good spirits.
