Hi all, I posted yesterday asking some questions about a '79 Deluxe. Today we brought it home. I say I'm sort of the new owner because my son actually bought it and i'm going to help him fix it up.

Here is the proud new owner.

199636


Here is what was inside the air filter:

199637


A new air filter was ordered.

Also on order, new oil filter, new throttle and return cables, new hand grips, new plugs.

Already put a new battery in and the starter turns over, so that's good.

Anyway, I'm sure we will be asking a lot of questions in the next few weeks and months.

Thanks in advance.

Dale

The cam chain is the weak part of these bikes mainly because people don’t adjust them at proper intervals. You might want to check the cam adjuster before actually adjusting the chain and afterwards with a dental mirror. This will give you an indication of PO’s maintenance on the bike.
