Corrosion

It still won't start.

The bike has been sitting most of the summer, and in attempt to get to the bottom of this little mystery, I pulled the front plate.

There are disadvantages to having an electrical system designed to withstand a nuclear blast. Humidity and an old rubber seal can wreak havoc on even the best Cold War engineering.

Does this mean you will be able to clean it up and get it running again? Good Luck. I wouldn't know where to begin...

Thanks for stopping. It's been in my garage for 8 weeks. All I need is a day to work it out, home maintenance and rainy days have kept me off the road for most of the summer.
