hello from the usa,western new york state.
im an old fart who likes fixing things and recently i discovered and bought this bike.
the registration says its a 1969 bike,and the inspection sticker still on it says 1969!
speedos showing 980 miles.
its missing the headset badge and needs a speedo glass face replacement.
i could also use a nice set of bars,but these seem to be specific to bike with the odd levers molded in?
so far,ive managed to eject mice and nest and whats left of the muffler packing,
i can kick bike over,gets fuel,gets spark doesnt start.
however compression is only?? 80lbs and im not sure what factory was.
it does show a strong spark,and i deffo could use some advice on this whole 5V thing.
while i was cleaning out bike,i also took off the top cover/valve cover and discovered a hollow head bolt.
left side of bike,back bolt,and the only one thats hollow.
it sits in its own little chamber,and that was half Full of crud and stains where water sat...im worried.
the whole rest of the valvetrain head area was perfectly clean and normal.
does anyone have an exploded diagram or pics of a dis-assembled 124/106 motor?
im thinking i should take the motor apart somehow and see where that water and crud came from?
any advice?...dos or donts?
many thanks in advance for any help rendered,cheers,Rob
heres the " mighty " motorcycle.
