Finally got the pan all back together, she started right up and ran real well on her first ride. I haven't gone faster than 35mph in third gear yet but so far all is well. Mike

This should probably be in the "Modified" section since I'm not "correct" But what the hell, I'm moving closer to what it looked like fifty six years ago! So far I've got fifty miles on and she just keeps running better and starting well. This bike is way more fun to ride than my twink, and no leaks! Mike
