Lead Brick

I was really hoping the 1969 Trail 70 CT70 I got for Max (and maybe me too...) would need a simple carb rebuild and it would fire right up. It kicked over... I thought.

Once I pulled off the carb it became quickly clear that wasn't going to happen.

I pulled the motor guard, exhaust and pulled off the head. Crap. I already tallied up what a mild restore would cost, almost $1000. You can get a whole new top end for $200. After all this work, it still will be cheaper than if I bought running.
