I am currently working on a red Cushman Super Eagle for a friend. It has been setting on my lift for 6 weeks.
I will send it home when I get that carb to quit leaking. First the petcock leaked, now the carb and also an oil leak.
I am tired of this thing. I am a Honda guy.

I hear you... I was just CL surfing yesterday and ran into many things nostalgic. I rode in the woods near where I grew up north of Tampa with a kid who had a Cushman while I had my first bike, the electric start CA102 (yep, not a dirt bike but my Dad made me ride it there until he felt I had learned enough to go out on the road) and that kid hated me because mine started so fast you could barely hear the starter... meanwhile he was struggling to get more than one or two revolutions on the Cushman with that crazy sideways-engineered kick starter

A lot of people love Cushman. To me they are so primitive compared to a real motor cycle.
With an old lawn mower motor and a pipe bender you could make one.
