Thanksgiving morning, a perfect time to work on motorcycles!

Well, I had an hour or two so I figured why not see if the barn find runs?

Believe it or not, she started first kick! After some fiddling with the carbs a little it ran pretty much the way a Commando should bar some exhaust smoke. After sitting for 20 years or so I think the rings may be a little gummed up, as the smoking has dissipated after a few more heat cycles. It’s running way too rich so I think the next job is to install some fresh needles and needle jets. Normal vibration and use tends to rattle them about and open up the clearances so it’s my first tuning step.

Have a look at the video and enjoy some turkey!
