Welcome to the forums.
Thanks all for the welcomes. Got some updates for ya'll. When I first got this quad it was in bad shape. (pics comming soon) so far with little money invested (30 bucks) Ive cleaned and flushed the rear diff. tore down and cleaned the carb compleatly. put it up on stands started it. changed the oil. the plug. have to use a funnel for a gas tank lol the tank is full of varnish it sat so long. got it to go through all its gear easily and reverse. on stands of course. no brakes. now im working on the back brakes. pain the the a$$. took the outter cover off after the tire and hub and a huge pule of dirt and crap fell out. I need to get the brakes atleast semi working so I can take it for a light slow road test. no plastics. No seat. funnel gas tank lol... fun times. but IT'S ALIVE!!!!! and what part of the forum should I start posting updates and what not in. I know even thisone shouldent be here but i wanted everyone to see since im not "known yet". Thanks eveyone.
