While searching for a new winter project I came across this Beta EVO. It needed lots of attention but it was cheap enough and ran great!

Initial purchase pics and what has been done so far...

The Vee rear tire is pretty hard!

Air filter was filtering/hanging on for dear life and ready to fall apart...got to it just in time

She is a 290. The cylinder bore looks fine and a quick peek through the exhaust port revealed no scuffing on the piston so the jug is not coming off

Next is replacing F&R wheel bearings (still in the mail). mounting the front tire, new Dot 4 in all the lines, coolant and trans oil. 

Loving this winter blues beating project!

This morning, enlarged the pinch point gap of the shift lever, installed rear bearings and changed the trans oil. Only 400ML overfilled it past the window so had to drain some. No signs of water.

With it on 2 wheels again took it outside to feel the suspension. Both ends need some add'l preload for my weight. 

Next up up is adding coolant and taking a test ride! The f.d. gearing is 11/40 which sounds fast but we'll see.
