Every time I transport that bike I lose another piece. I need a few new cotter pins this time and the strap-downs could use some loving too. But it arrived at Casa Coug fine and I replaced the battery (more than a hundred bucks thanks to it having a Bar and Shield printed on it), the plugs, the oil, and (unintentionally) the gear-lube. Hold on. Let me say that one again... Gear-Lube. Okay.
Anyway, I was completely expecting that the carb would have to come off and get the bowl de-varnished, but after a bit of coaxing, BB started up and almost had a heart-attack (the throttle is sticky). But I put the seat on and took her for a spin down and around the Marriotsville hills, and quickly found out that the brakes are rusty and rust doesn't stop bikes. Also I caught a mammoth-sized butterfly right in my eye going about 50, but only pussies blink.
We tarped it and stored it next to his garage until I can get it inspected, which will hopefully be this Thursday (and possibly today). Next step after the inspection is to go immediately to the tag&title place and get some plates.
