New here and new project!!

Post by LC201 » Wed Nov 23, 2016 6:21 pm

Hello to one all first. I am just about to start on my new project, from the frame number it shows that it is a C2 model. It has been stood since 2012, a one owner and started occasionally so I was told!!

I put some two stroke down the bores and turned it over on the kickstart a couple of times.
Well surprise it did not start!! So took the carbs of and cleaned the jets out. some crap in them!!

Image

Bingo! Bit smokey at first but Im sure that will settle down.
I may/will have some questions to ask along the way and hope that I will benefit from others experience with these bikes.

Hello!

Nice bike!
And that was a lot of crud!
They can be pretty Smokey till they are quite warm depending on oil?

Welcome in mate, I think possibly I spotted that bike on eBay?

Looks a nice example anyway.

Hi and welcome, must admit, I'm struggling to see where that needs to be restored, a bucket of water, a good clean and wax, and bingo, new bike. Sounds nice and crisp too... :)
