TV175 Series 3


I picked up this bike in 1988 from an ad in the San Francisco Advertiser and went down to look at the bike. It was rusty and a little dinged but all in one piece. The bike would not start and stupidly I tried to make sure it would go in front of the seller. I pulled the plug, found that it had a spark, sprayed some WD40 directly into the barrel, and replaced the plug. I kicked it and it fired about 3 times until the WD40 was gone. Of course the buyer now had $$ in his eyes and I had to pay the full amount he was asking.
