Another Craig's List acquisition. The ad said, "Ride it home." I don't think so, there were 4V coils under the seat but it still had points.
When I got it home I put some proper coils on it, set the points and fired it up. Then I bought the Tri Spark.
The first time I rode it in the mountains it still had the comical front brake. Totally inadequate for the heavy triple, I swapped it for the disc front end on my A65.
The petrol tank was painted with rattle can lacquer, so I added a couple of coats from an old can I had.
This year I found a tank with the correct colors. After having the pin stripes redone it looks pretty darn good, for 50 year old paint.
