So to get this going again. I am just now getting Gavin's R going for our dunes trip coming up at the end of June. I have it running (kind of). I believe I have some electrical problems to sort. Also I have a problem with the brakes. I bought a nice set of brakes off Ebay and am going to install them over the next few days. Gavin has been helping me as much as I can stand lol

Stock length for now, but he might end up with my +2 arms. Thanks Josh

I found the problem! Bad CDI for sure. I verified it with a good cdi off my other son's R. If only I had a spare!

So after getting a cdi on the R I  got running only to discover that the craigslist bottom end had a horrible knock. I pulled it down and replaced the crank, main bearings and rebuilt the counter balancer(myself....no special jig required). It now runs and rides without issue.

So this guy you know that can tig weld, does he wear an ascot around his neck while he fabricates?
