So, I sat on my CB tonight, and was just messing around. I went to twist the throttle, and the grip didn't move. Not sure, but the cable seems siezed. I can't say I'm surprised. Afterall, it's been sitting since the Carter Administration.

So what's the question?? :cool: Or was it more of a "oh sh*t" what now statement??

I'm sure it's just the cable is siezed up..

Good point. I did put a question mark in the title, didn't I?

The wisest thing I can do is to get a replacement as opposed to trying to repair what's there. If it's siezed now, there's no guarantee it won't sieze again.

Are these parts fairly easy to come by? I haven't tried looking just yet.

I dug a little deeper, and it looks to me now that it's not the throttle cable, it's the carburetors that are siezed. Time to remove, and rebuild!

joy.
