After about 20 years of sitting in our garage with a froze up engine, Dad decided to fix up his old motorcycle. I can barely remember riding on it way back then! Dad's friend Jack helped do all the engine work - installing new pistons, rings, valves, as well as numerous bearings, seals, and gaskets. Jack also installed an electronic ignition system.

Here you can see the effect of 30 years on the side panels and fuel tank.
