Questions & Answers
Q: does the motor turn over .... has any one pulled the tower off the trany to see its internal condition posted by: paraglider 4/24/2024 11:12 AM PT
A: no trans two not removed I can get the trans mainshaft to move back and forth a bit. Like wise on the exposed camshaft gear but. The engine is preserved in old oil and I’m guessing it’s just the exhaust valves that are stuck.
Q: does the motor turn over? do u have any additional parts not pictured....?is the frame and front end straight??? has any welding been done to them? how good do the matching numbers look are they factory posted by: paraglider 4/24/2024 11:09 AM PT
A: If the exh valves are freed up I’m pretty certain it’ll turn over. The old guy said he was just going to tidy up the outside of the bike and get back to riding it. That was 40 years ago in Texas I have footboard pans to go with the bike.
