Anyway, winter is coming,
so I'll have plenty of time to learn about all this as I get my bike
running well and looking better. Milestone: I got the engine to start on
one cylinder last night. I'm going to pull the carbs off and check them
out, I think this bike's been sitting a lot.
I have a very
limited budget, and I hope the bulletproof reputation of the KZ motor holds
true for this bike so I don't have to sink too much money into the
internals, I'm hoping to spend some on cosmetics like paint and some
customization. I paid $150 for the bike, and it was a struggle to come up
with that money, so that tells you what kind of budget I'm working
with! With some effort, though, at least I'll be back on the road.
