Thanks Dave. Thats the plan! I had a couple other guys already email
about help and parts. Great to see i have found a place to get the help i
need. Funny, the first time i attempted this back in 98' the internet wasnt an
avenue to do this. Strnage how a few years can change things....


You gotta cut a deal with your F-I-L - you'll clean it up again, and he can
ride it any time he wants - but it sleeps in YOUR shop, not that dusty old

Check over in the Parts section, a number of sources there. Duane Taylor,
J&M Collectibles for parts; and Mutt Hallam for engine work/advice - are
the first ones off my tongue.

You're not too far from the San Francisco boys - John Dutra and Gene
Underwood - they have similar model bikes. And Dean Hummer is only a
couple hours away.

You're fortunate to have an original bike, well-preserved - except for the
dust. A few hours replacing the head gasket (and carb gasket while you're
at it) should get it Hummin' again soon.

I'll bet you'll be at Dixon next summer!

And now, 16 years later, it sits, dusty and neglected again.
