I tried to get some pics, but the mem. card in my camera jammed. I'll get those later. I got it from an elderly gentleman in Rural TN. It has sat for approx. 6 years. It had a "skip" in the motor that he payed someone to fix, but it still existed when it was parked.

It has lots of problems, but lot of potenttial too. I know the front brake is gone. The fluid res. is all but disintegrated, which in turn leaked brake fluid all over the throttle cables so they are stuck, etc... Fuel tank is heavily rusted.

On a good note I did get the motor to crank, all the body panels are in decent shape, blinkers, headlights, brake lights, are working.

Not too sure where to start. I am draining the fuel, and figured I'd pull the fuel tank and work on it first....
