Yep again, I came up 575, I try an avoid Atlanta at all costs, 285 was bad, but the construction on 85 was a NIGHTMARE. Take a normal lane and put jersey baracades on the white lines of the 2 lanes. Me with a trailer thats about the widest you can tow legally, and it leaves next to no room for error. Add in stoooopid Atlanta drivers texting/eating/ doing God knows what else while driving made it a white knuckle drive.
Sorry JIm, not taking offers on it.
NO luck on the serial number plate, it's looong gone. The moss growing in it's place looks about a mid 60's vintage tho.
Any time any of the southern boys want to come take a look at it shoot me an email, but I can guar-o-tee it will be at Gary's cub fest in March, I might get shoot now if I didn't bring it.
It "runs" but it really won't go past 1/3 throttle, so It's gonna get a complete tune up/carb rebuild ASAP, and since the entire wiring/charging system is shot or questionable, I may convert to 12V for the time being since I have 99% of the parts to do it to make it a reliable runner. It looks like sometimes later on, it had the original carb replaced with a later model Zenith carb, because the carb almost swallows the intake. If that is the case, I might try and track down a number series manifold to take advantage of the larger carb.
If ya'll want any specific questions answered, or pictures take, fire away. This is obviously a rare cub, and finding out about these things to me is part of the fun.
