Re: Kickstarter questions

Attached image is taken from a period road test from 1965 of what would certainly have been a 'new' IE not messed with bike. Hard to see clearly but if you look close the kick start arm is at the 11 o' clock position as specified by LM. That's about where mine is and it works fine, one 'notch' lower...

Re: Fuel tank painting

Need to make sure the Superglue has fully 'gone off' before putting the fuel cap back on!
