I sold my last street bike when I got my XR because I just wan't riding it much and it was taking up space. For some reason I went back on that and picked up this heap of rust for a project bike. It is a 1973 Kawasaki F7 enduro. It was my father-in-laws who bought it used in 1976 and just never really rode it. It was last started in 1999 but had carb issues and wasn't worth it to him to fix. The bad side is that it was parked under his house that is always wet. It is rusted up pretty bad but with enough liquid wrench I was able to get the cables to move and put it in N to roll it on my truck. The engine was seized from but I sprayed the cylinder down last night and this morning I was able to get it to move. Going to clean the carb up tonight and make a make shift gas tank bottle to see if I can get it to fire. The tank is rusted pretty bad on the inside so that will be a whole other issue. Don't want to sink alot of money into this but it would be a cool bike to ride on the Forest Service roads near my house. Wish me luck with this one.
