About

A friend of mine owned several bikes between him and his dad. They knew I was looking for another. (I got my first sport bike from them too, a 1994 katana). I traded a German K98 8mm rifle that I had picked up for $100 for the bike. The motor on the bike had overheated and locked up. When I got it home I somehow came up with the idea that if it locked up going forward maybe if I got it rolling fast enough backwards and slammed it into gear it might unlock. I put a little marvel mystery oil into each sparkplug hole. On the third attempt as I rolled backwards I threw it up into second gear. When I came to a stop it actually turned over a few times. I choked it and it cranked. It ran great. It only had a slight tick at idle but ran strong when on the throttle. I eventually replaced the engine anyway though.

This is my second sport bike.
