What have i done!

Post by shocker on Sun Apr 24, 2016 11:08 pm

Went to The Stafford Classic Bike Show yesterday and thought it a good idea at the time to 'adopt' this 37 year old contraption  Shocked

After a kicking a 350 with an arse about face kickstart over for half an hour, cleaning the plug, realising the choke lever is nothing but an ornament and the spark is a feeble pale yellow colour then another half hour work out it miraculously burst into life  cheers
It was probably just as well that I was too knackered to try and ride the thing by then!

Let's just hope an electronic ignition kit and some new jets help now Very Happy

I told the Mrs I can't bend enough for gardening due to the dodgy rib -  think she smelt a rat when she heard me constantly kicking that thing over though! Embarassed

Maybe it'd make a better multi-gym, it'd only do your cardio and left leg any good though! Very Happy Very Happy

You realise that your bike is the same age as this Datsun Bluebird .
Is Leominster in some sort of time warp ?
p.s does that mean i can have your half finished DT50 now ?
