I bought a bike. The bike was in a lot worse shape than I had originally expected. I have spaced replaced the wheel bearings, rebuilt the forks, disassembled and cleaned the breaks, replaced the tires, and rebuilt the cooling system. This work has been a real healing process for me. I can't wait for the bike to be road worth and I can see the country. I will post my trips on here.
The petcock valve was leaking and filled my oil with gas. I had to take the carb apart, adjust the float needle. I rebuilt the petcock, but it still leaks, so I temperately put brass valve on it. I'll replace the whole thing with a manual one when I get time.
