I cleaned the RD250's carbs last night. It has spark so with gas it ought to run. I also cleaned the carb on a 73, or so, TS185 I bought a month or two ago and took it on a VERY scary midnite ride. Think huge wheelies and no brakes as I was trying to ride this thing after it has not been ridden in god knows how long. Clearly I have to go back and do some work on it before I try riding it again. Next time I ride it it will be daylight and the brakes will be in operating condition. The levers worked but I think the linings must have fallen off the shoes. Nice. Made me holler pretty loud tho'.
The RD250 will be an interesting ride considering it has sat in storage for 20 years. I have someone that wants it in Florida so if anyone is heading that way for Daytona I can get you a few bucks for throwing this bike on the trailer and carrying it down for the buyer to pickup
