Been dragging this around 50 years. Original builder just passed away, it's in my care till it goes back to family.

A hack had his mits on it before I picked it back up. now to fix his crap work.
Will post his work & also what I did to correct to my liking.

Thanks Jon for loading picture, new on here and will try to figure it out, if not to bad for me.

Anyway I bought this from my foster father back in 1976 and have carried it all these years, Yes it does have a serial number of 9000S9.
I taking a wild guess and saying the (S) might mean special & the 9 is number of frame, surely there are not 9 thousand of these frames or there would by more of these floating around.

I had to do a repo from a shop in Michigan
as they wanted this bike to disappear into their greedy paws,

Foster father came to help on a house I'm building about 2 years ago now,
he took it back up to Ohio and had a guy Tom Bibish get it running. All I can say is TOM is a non caring individual and if I can figure out how
to get pictures loaded easier you can all see just how sloppy this guy's work is.

You are welcome. The trick to posting Imgur images here is to copy the BBCode for (message boards & forums) for a particular image and then directly paste that copied link, directly into your post. You do not use the "Insert Image Link" when copying and pasting the BBCode for forums & message boards.
