Bad gas kills, Two stoke oil saves.

So this GT750 sat for some 30+ years untouched. Something about a divorce and a 30 year separation between father and son and upon reuniting this bike was dug out of hibernation. It sat in a dirt floor airplane hanger. It was trucked to my shop from Ohio. I had to drag it rather than roll it onto my lift. Trying to remove the center carb's float bowl with the tap of a screwdriver handle resulted in a float bowl that shattered like sugar glass. I spent some time making dirty sweet love to the carbs and with a new set of breaker points this ol bitch fired right up on the very first kick.
