Thanks, Joe. Being ex-military, you may recognize those structures in the background in the 2nd pic. Hint: 25 years ago, that bike (and me) would be in a shoot-to-kill zone!
First, That is a great looking bike. Second, that looks like Cecil Field. I did some work on the base when it was active.
I have wondered for years about getting to use a bit of the property that the city owns out around Cecil for a hare scramble or enduro. I don't know the exact acreage but I think it's around 25,000 acres. The city could shave of a little piece for us to use.

You got me thinking about that property, Rick, so I did a little research. Obviously, anything south of Normandy Blvd is out of the question, what with those active runways and all. Unfortunately, based on Google Maps and the Equestrian Center website, nearly all the Yellow Water property north of Normandy consists of either new roads, developed land, or the Equestrian Center Conservation Corridor with hiking/bicycling/horse trails.
Aaaaand it won't start. It'll fire but won't stay running. I might just send the carb to Tokyo Mods and be done with it.
Hi Danny, If you are running fuel with ethanol, you might just need to get the carb cleaned and check the jets for corrosion. The Ethanol attracts moisture and seems to attack brass jets if left sitting for a while. Another possibility for any four stroke is the valves might need adjusting. Hope this helps. Ozzy
Been working on a couple of these for awhile. 1974 Penton Jackpiner is up and running and this is the 74.5 Penton Jackpiner in progress. 74 was set up to be a runner with minimal cosmetic work and 74.5 was stripped to the frame and is moving forward. "Blue" KTM's...Blasphemy!!! Go Blue : )
Jess/Oz, thanks for the kind words. It should be ready soon then on to a hopefully good home. I may end up at some point doing this ones brother but we'll see. Today I had tires installed on my 03 Triumph Bonnie and also had it dyno tested for air/fuel ratios. Just wanted to know if the new jets I installed we're correct. Next up, 1963 Triumph Cub 200c. Should be a good project. Previous owner did a fluff and polish but it needs front end and engine work, new wiring and also a change in color to match that Factory color. Should be interesting as the fender stripes had hand painted gold pin stripes. I'll post some before photos when I get it going..
