The carburetors were cleaned and synched by a local master bike mechanic. It is a one or two kick bike tops, once you figure out the right procedure, choke setting etc etc. Added a new battery and brand new tires last winter. I spent 20 minutes cleaning and polishing and this is what she looks like. It can be much better with a little more effort. No engine noise and runs real strong. Horn, electric start, brake, gear, speedometer, tachometer works great. The chrome needs to be polished out more. No rips or tears in the seat. Chain and sprocket seem to have little miles on them. I've driven the bike down the highway and it was solid.
