While I was working on my GTV18 rebuild, which you can read about in my other post, this GT6000 showed up on the local internet classifieds for a great price. To my wife's dismay, I brought it home. But, after a carburetor rebuild, a new fuel filter, a new seat, and a basic service, she's running and cutting like a champ. That gave me some relief with the boss. This winter I'll tear it apart and give her a fresh coat of paint, maybe to match the GTV.
The problem now is figuring out how to justify the next one to my better half.
