Sad Juliet

I've been pressing my boss for months to get Juliet running, that I would come out and figure out what was up. He said he kicked it forever and it wouldn't start. Finally, today we went out to his house. It was glaringly obvious what the problem was. His carbs were gummed as hell and filled with tank rust clogging the jets. No inline fuel filter, no air filter of any kind. He didn't have much in the way of tools, so I popped the carbs off and am taking them home for the weekend to clean. And making him put an inline filter on, and maybe some of those sweet Slinky air filters. The 49 Mile Ride is next weekend... maybe I'll be riding Juliet? I promised I wouldn't wreck her like last time.

I'm not ashamed to admit I was pretty influenced by that bike when I was building my '68. Cool bike. I'm glad to hear you're helping to get it back on the road.
