bingo, shel. 1974.

starts well enough, if i do everything right. according to the seller it set for most of the last 20 years in a collector's basement. won't go over 40, just leans out. when it's warm enough to idle you can reach down and push a tickler and the idle will go up 200 rpm, so it looks like the carbs are all varnished up.

i've had an old twin for a long time, but this triple stuff is new to me.
