76 GT550 Clist find

Post by Tune-A-Fish »

No new story here, got lucky, found a Craigslist gem 76 GT550 that had been stuffed in a garage for many years, so the usual... cylinder/compression inspection, carb refresh, battery and oil injection clean/transfusion and brakes all rebuilt. Turned out nice.

Those images are huge, but not sure how to make em smaller just yet.

As soon as I replace the Brake line (for no reason other than age really) the Bike will be for sale :up:

Nice cleanup/resto job there.
Think of how stupid the average person is, then realise that half of them are more stupid than that.

Thanks! Not much to do on this one, carbs and oil injection needed a good flush tune and synch a new petcock was given to me so added that and cleaned up the old one for another day. After gettin the pilots out it was smooth sailing.

I have a thread on it here: one of he members told me about this forum, but I'm not trained on the image tools just yet so my posts are a bit wonky.
