    That's the beauty of Old-Timer's Syndrome.

    Every day is like Christmas - something new and exciting to you. That you've completely forgotten.

    ...Barn find in your own barn?...CLASSIC...

    Hope you get it un-jammed and rolling again. I learned to ride on a Yamaha R5C...a 350. I'd give a lot to have that one back...

    Squirt some Marvel Mystery Oil in the cylinders and wait another year or so?
    Spend some time but not much money unless you are in love with idea of resurrecting it.

    I had one of them! I traded my Kawasaki 100 for the Yamaha 180 and a CB160. Wow, that brings back some memories.

    Check out those fork springs! Don't make 'em like they used to...maybe there is a reason why.
    Every time I look at the old bikes in my barn and think Resurrection Day I end up saying "Naw" and just go ride the TW instead.
