didn't know how to title this thread,but i think this belongs here!
i just 'obtained' 2 motorbikes,(i barter a lot!)
one is a 1972 360 torque induction enduro.
the other is a 1980 heritage special 400cc.
these bike don't run right now,BUT!
they have all their parts,are not seized up,and have compression when ya kick them over.
i got these because of their age,and i also thought it would be good projects for my 2 sons and myself
to try to restore them!
now,i ask. did i bite off more than i can chew?
both bikes need a full restore BUT! they have all their original parts,with no damage.
age,and lack of use is the only foe to these machines!
the enduro only has 900 hours on it (for the younger crowd,old dirt bikes measured their use in hours,like a tractor!)
the 400 has just under 2000 miles on it.
if anyone could share any light on what i'm about to attempt that would be great!
i do have an interesting question.
the enduro has 2 spark plugs,but it only has 1 piston! there is a mechanism on the clutch side of the handlebars that appears to 'switch' between the
now,i'm an old car guy that has had much experience servicing my long list of vehicles,the carburated kind!
never owned bikes,so this kinda stumps me! any help on anything would be great!
thanx in advance
sorry,add on! i forgot to mention they are both yamahas
