A couple of ya already knew I was going to look at it. The guy did a fairly decent job on the repaint. I know he didn't sandblast every single part but it will at least preserve it till I get a chance to go over it and it at least looks good till then. He has all brand new rubber on it, the motor was rebuilt with a new rod, piston and rings. The hydro works great. I don't care for the seat although it is pretty comfy, I could see me with one of those two beer can hats and a 1/2" fuel line for a straw LOL.

My little girl couldn't wait to go for a ride so my wife got a couple pics of us driving around.

That one looks better than the 125 you just got.

I paid a little more for this one also. He did a decent job on the paint, I don't know why he didn't put decals on it. I bought the 125 because everything on it mechanically was replaced, it just needs to be stripped and painted.

George I think you did pretty good on both of them, everybody wants a bargain, I don't think you paid too much for ether of them.

It is always nice when you can find a bargain but it doesn't happen too often, at least not near me. I gotta stop buying for a little while. We are going to be moving and I don't want anymore to move then what I have now LOL. I am still keeping my eyes peeled for the masseys that may come up.

The stack is awesome, and by the way I have seen very few 147, vs others in this series, did they make a lot less or make them fewer years?
