My daughter and I bought a 'project' bike to work on together. It runs. But two problems: battery doesn't stay charged (won't start without a jump) it seems to act like it's not getting air to the engine, it's like it's always driving in a higher gear. There was some mods done to it before we got it making it look like a cafe racer. Any help would be appreciated including directions to previous posts. We are also new to this website. I've had dirt and road bikes for a while but my mechanic experience is limited to quite basic car and motorcycle stuff. I hope to learn more though.

I had a more full look around the website maybe I should be inquiring on the vintage forum?

Hi JDR, welcome to the forums! Yes, this forum is mainly for introductions -- you should probably post your technical question in the vintage forum. Personally, I don't know the answer to your question -- but there's probably someone here who can help.
