Mike was in good spirits a few days ago (Tuesday ) the bike shop was selling a bike, he did not have the gasket I needed.

I walked in with a 2 gallon white bucket with my carburetor and he asked me if I was going fishing? I told him I wanted to go, Albacore / Yellowtail fishing.

I stop in there a few times a year for jets ect.

I am pretty confident I have isolated the problem with the bike not starting.

After several attempts the bike seems to have spark ( blue ) but I am pretty sure it is intermittent. I do not think I am getting continuous spark. The next easy step it to kick it hard in the dark to see if it has:
Continuous blue spark?

Sometimes, when you sell a bike you have remorse. Well, let me tell you I am doing a dance of Joy knowing that bike is now gone.

*No title
*No key
*No start

When you’re going to buy a bike, if it doesn’t meet your personal criteria, chances are good it will not meet someone else’s either.


Even though I made a little money, many other bikes were much more enjoyable..

Goodbye Bonnie;
Cross-eyed Mary had style...
