I shouldn’t be allowed to look at Craigslist. I found the ad around 1PM and by 4 PM, I had it unloaded.
It is complete with all plastics. It needs a good cleaning, a seat latch, new gas cap, and fresh fuel. Judging from the varnish smelling gas, I think it’s been a long time since this ran last. Compression feels extremely low.
Pics will be added after work. I cannot wait to get working on this one! The plan is to keep this one stock looking and quiet. I may have to follow Zino ‘s stealthy build 😉

I flushed the nasty gas tank. Cleaned the heck out of the carb. I couldn't read the old MJ, so I threw in a 74. New fuel filter. Deleted oil injection. I am now running 93 octane with 40:1 oil mix. Found a spare seat latch from my other Venice! ( It pays to have the same model.)
Fully stock, I clocked 36.8 MPH. Next step is to remove the wedding ring, change nothing else and see what she does!
That's great you have it running now. Let the modification begin.😁
