I finally got the motorcycle running. It was actually pretty easy. Motorcycles are pretty straight forward when it comes working on them. I didn't find it as complicated as a car engine. I did most of the work myself but I did get a little help from my neighbor. I still don't have a kickstart, so i have to push start it to get it running. I cleaned out the old gas in the tank and the carburetor and replaced the battery, spark plug and air filter. It's still running a little rough and it dies on me after a few minutes of riding it around, but I think that's because it hasn't been ridden much in the past 20 years (it was last registered in 1987). It seems to be getting better though.
