You might be a redneck if you own two '78 LM's.
Which I now do.
The existing Raceco bike is in fair fettle and is a sheer joy to ride, with some minor niggles am working through. Bleed. High speed stumbles. Which I hope you'll allow me to circle back to. Had a 'professional' give it a functional restoration but that's turned out to be a dry hole.
The new one is an un-mo-lested bike. Well it has gold wheels and is missing the stacks but.....That's it. Low low low miles too. Looks like it's lived indoors.
Starts, runs, stops, but given my age and physique I MUST install rear sets yesterday. The Raceco bike has the basic fixed Tarozzi's, which work fine but the fixed pegs make me nervous.
Any of you Tonti-ites have rear sets on your bike, if so which, and do you like them? I saw some folding pegs for rear sets somewhere, anyone know if they retrofit to the existing?
Anyone have, have seen, can propose, a comprehensive list of the all the rubber bits, cables, etc that a largely untouched bike needs? Care to suggest tasks that should be done?
Aside from the rubber etc I intend to fully refresh the brakes, as in all-new (that necessary?), and add a deep-sump external-filter pan.
Ride, Captain, Ride.
