Fast forward 6 years, even though the bike is parked in
the kitchen it is not looking so good anymore, so time to give
it some love. Some of the problems; always a drop of oil under
the bike, rust on the driveshaft, fuellines deteriorated from
the sun and a lot of cleaning necessary..
I removed the driveshaft for polishing and
then, as it was hard to see wher the oil came from, I decided
to remove the transmission, put it in a different location and
see if the oil came from transmission or engine. The further
I got the more things I saw that needed attention, poor thing!
The good news is that the engine does not
leak a drop, it is the transmission where it is coming from.
I will fix this next and take the opportunity to clean and repolish
everything. I might as well make that kickstarter I was planning
on adding now that I am working on this bike. These pics are
rather depressing, I hope for more pleasing ones next time!
