Wrong Parts!

After much trial and error, we figured out that the compression relief lever wasn't working. The motor was way too hard to pedal start. Pat and looked through some old parts catalogs and realized the bike had a lever that was for a new model, in the late teen's twenties. The control rods were all wrong too. No wonder! I guess people just put on whatever old parts they could find, even if they didn't work!
We found some new parts from Lonnie at Competition Distributors in Sturgis and ordered what we needed. Got them a week later and we were in business!
