I might be picking up a TW this weekend and bringing it home in the back of my truck.
I need to know the distance between the top of the front tire and the bottom of the triple tree, so that I can build a makeshift dog bone for the trip back.
Can anyone help me out? Metric or Imperial...I'll figure it out.
Well....that didn't pan out too well.
Bike was parked outside, in the rain when I got there...idled funny, some rust in the tank, plastics were scuffed, front sprocket needed replacing, chain was rusty and unkept.
Then, I took it for a "test drive"....and things went from bad to worse. On the first turn, it seemed to have a mind of its own....wandered all over the place....rear brake was non-existent...the whole steering-geometry was weird.
I brought it back to the owner and said a polite "no thank you".
