Hey all,
Just picked up my winter project!
It's been parked up for many years but I have had it turning over today (battery off, plug out, kick over).
Looking forward to getting some hints, tips and advice from you all!

Good model you have there. No battery required to run. I'd give the exposed fork tubes a strop up with worn out emery cloth so as 'not' to push rust through the seals & spray some light oil on them plus the rear shock shafts. Sorry i just saw your pics & can now see that you're 'right' into it--good one. Good way to put the photos up too--i like that & can increase the size a bit too. Thanks.
