Yamaha Other description

1970(?) HS-1 90cc twin. As is where is. No title. A project I'll never get to. I have ridden it and it was about like you'd expect from a 90cc. I was gonna make chambers and give it the true cafe treatment but life got in the way. It will need a full rebuild. It has been sitting and I am sure the carbs are gummy. There are two other issues you need to know about: 1) Someone tossed a chain and popped a nice chunk off the LH case right where the shift drum boss is. It weeps oil from there when it's running and the oil is bathing the gearbox. HOWEVER...The wound is above the oil line and it can be used as is if you just want to fart around on it until you get to the repair. Cases are almost always on eBay for $50-$100. 2) Some issue with the charging system. I suspect a ground from a worn wire. Won't charge battery and so it sputters when the battery gets flat (won't fire the coils). Chrome is pitty. Tank looks like it may have been lined. Couple dents. I can send more pics if you want. I'll help load but shipping is buyer's thing. Cash or wells fargo cashiers check on pickup.  919-819-4950
