Now the question is what to do with it.
I'm tempted to make it a runner.
The good: 939 miles on this thing. You read right, nine hundred thirty-nine. Speedo is still connected and works. Appears to have been in an accident early in its life and left to sit in a garage for the next 40 years. Literally untouched. Don't think it was ever even serviced. Oil, spark plug, tires etc. etc. look new. Every nut and bolt is there. Tank is shiny clean.
The bad: Some dents, surface rust, miscellaneous broken stuff. Couple of busted turn signals, headset is cracked, throttle tube sticky. Frame and fork appear to be straight. Pinhole rust on one floorboard.
The engine is a keeper regardless, but the question is what to do with the rest of the bike. Worth the effort to restore? Just make it a runner? Part it out?
So whaddaya say?
