    Life!

    After fussing with some battery charging and remembering what a petcock is and how to use I forced the Lav into Life yesterday and rode it down the block and back.
    Not pretty or smooth but it ran. And smoked a bit too.
    I decided to name the bike "Brimstone"

    I am thinking of looking for 36mm Mikunis .

    Then turning Brimstone over to my man Sean at RTL MOTO in Santa Ana for some revival work.
    Removing the Lucas switchgear in favor of the Japanese bits used on old Guzzi's and other SFs.

    It may just be a sizing issue on the pics. If the file attempts to upload and then stops after a few seconds, the file is too large.

    You can either email the pics to yourself as an attachment at a reduced file size or use something like an Android based tablet as most of their cameras will take very small pixel size images and post directly onto web sites.

    Cheers.
