    On the fence....

    As stated the motor runs great, plenty of power, no unusual noises or vibrations. Compression readings are a constant 135 on both cylinders, which I don't consider outstanding, but acceptable. (Again this reading is with a Harbor Freight gauge with an extension for the correct spark plug hole adapter.) It does blow a little white smoke when reved up, not a great deal but some. I have two schools of thought, since everything is down, would this be a good time to go and ahead and at least re-ring the top end. I am also aware I could probably run this motor as is, with the limited use this bike is going to see, for at least a couple of years. I am somewhat leaning to the second alterternative after looking at what I have spent so far. I have time to think it through, run the numbers a couple more times, and really think whether or not I want to go back inside of another 305 motor with my ever present friends that Father Time has sent as my new "besties", arthritis and piss poor vision. We will see, maybe no so well, but we will see........

    What i do is run 1 ounce of real good 2 stroke oil to every gallon i run thru my old bikes. 1 to help lubricate their valves, and clean and lube the rings. Don't notice any smoke with this mix and i get good results on performance.
    I for one would lean to the latter also.

    Thanks Charlie, great tip. I have heard that before from a couple of real old time wrench spinners.....

    BTW

    I am starting to turn a little "Chinese Red" here and there....

    Parts ordering complete.....

    I believe I ordered the last parts I need this morning, tank pads and rear brake shoes. Red bits are hanging everywhere to cure, I hope I can track them all down when it comes to assembly. I did mount a rear Ensign Tire today after cleaning the rusty wheel as best I could. I was elated the tube was not "PINCHED" in the process. I did celebrate this afternoon by knocking off early and taking a ride on something that runs, my 2004 TBS. Damn pretty day and it felt good just to hit some back country roads and not be covered in red paint.......

    Great find and I love the red frame and how it accents the bike. I went one step further and restored my CL77 with a blue frame. I used to have a chart that showed how many bikes were produced by color. Blue was very rare. I will look to see if I can find it.

    Can't blame you for that... and it's looking damn fine. I'm envious of your CL77
