    Hey guys. New guy here. I probably have the same story as many folk here. I had a Trail 70 as a kid, until my brother took it apart trying to fix it, then eventually scrapped it. :yell:. But thats another story. I recently picked up a couple of 72's. Both of them are running, one not so well right now, but I knew that getting into it. I'm gonna just clean up the good running one a bit, fix a few odds and ends, and then ride it for now. The other I will probably go through a bit more thoroughly, semi-restore, as it has more miles. Anyhoot, I've been reading through a lot of the threads here, great information source. I'm sure I will have some questions before too long, but just wanted to come out of the lurking hole and say Hi!

    Hello Dravintoad!
    Welcome to lilhonda.

    Many times, when I was young, I wished I was big enough to punch one of my brothers right in the nose.

    On the first one I got the carb cleaned and engine purring, de-greased and cleaned up, tail lights are now working, fresh paint on the wheels, fresh high heat paint on the muffler, battery from my kids power wheels (lol), cleaned up a few odds and ends, changed the oil, fresh gas, then took it for a spin around the neighborhood with a big grin on my face. I'm gonna leave the "patina" on it for now.

    The other, I need to order a few parts before I get to scoot it around, but at least I have something to ride for the moment.
