Greetings all!

Jay from Ontario, Canada here. A bit of history:

Got myself a 84 Suzuki Tempter project bike about 6 years ago; i traded my '63 Studebaker for it because i couldnt fit thw car in my garage, and mother in law wanted it out of her yard!

Got my bike license about 3 years ago, figuring I'd have the Zook on the road that year (nope! Babies take precedence over toys).

Father-in-law took pity, realizing my bike wouldn't be road-worthy before my level 2 licence expires (for those who don't know, Ontario runs a graduated licencing system: M1 lasts 90 days, M2 lasts 5 years and M is full licence), so he lent me his '79 750f to practice on. I crashed it within 3 weeks. Embarassed

So I bought a parts bike, figuring I'd need a whole pile to fix it up...enter my '81 750c. Well, it turns out that the F-Bike only needed new bars (donated by a friend), a left rear turn signal (I LOVE epoxy!) And the scratches removed from the advancer cover.

Seeing as I didn't need anything from the C, I decided to find out why the guy sold it for $750.00. I drained what looked like black coffee out of the tank, pulled and checked the carbs for gunkiness (my own special word): they were spotlessly clean; just not hooked up!
I then bypassed the stupid vacuum fuel valve and connected to the tank like FIL's '79; charged the battery and viola! It runs sweeter than the F! I rebuild the right front caliper and flushed the sludge brake fluid (holy goop, Batman! The only thing that looked worse than the fuel). I installed a high output LED headlamp bulb so that a night ride isn't like holding a candle and then signed on here!

So far the group seems very friendly and knowlegabe; I hope I can make a decent contribution! I'm sure I'll have many questions along the way (nothing about pods though- Iearned that particular lesson with my Tempter) and beg your patience.

That's it for now!
