Here's where I'm at on the bar bike, Project: Viragoster aka "Stale gas"



I "flushed" the tanks with kerosene, cleaned the petcock out, still need to pull the fuel pump and soak it. The carbs are out and being professionally cleaned/rebuilt as we speak. (The butterflies wouldn't move due to old gas gummage).

The rest of the bike is in pretty good shape, just needed a dusting. The wheels cleaned up very nice except for a couple corroded spots on the rear, they just need a little more attention.

I still need to check/adjust the valves, reinstall the carbs and exhaust and she should be ready to run. Oh , and get a battery.

I have a set of z-bars coming along with some bar end mirrors and new grips. Once she's running, then the plan is to get a set of white walls.

If i'm lucky I can have it ready to roll for a little over 1k$ total. A little more if I choose to fix the big dent in the tank. :)
