We bought a couch!

September 26, 2009

That’s right, the other day Tersta and went out the other day and bought a “couch” well actually ’78 Godwing in full dress.

The last time it was on the road was in ’02 and it has the typical issues that come from a 31 year old motorcycle that has sat for seven years. The carbs are gummed up and the points and stuff needed a good cleaning.

But I got it running after a thorough cleaning and I still have a few gremlins to chase down.

First things first, some of the shit has to go. I may keep the fairing, but there is a bunch of those tacky lights on it that need to be gone, and some really bad fake pinstripe stickers. And a NASCAR sticker (disgusting!) that need to get a razor blade treatment.

But I still need to get the timing set and dial the carbs in a bit more.

Tomorrow will be pics!
