hi, everyone, I'm new at restoring bikes normally I do cars.
I'm from Sydney Australia.
decided to work on bikes cause they take less space.
I'm very excited and determine to finish this project.
so here my story.
bought the bike on facebook market, it was advertised for 900.00aud.
managed to get for a lot less, upon the inspection, I found oil in the radiator and engine had water mixed with oil.
the ad stated mechanically sound anyway managed to get it for a lot less.
I'm assuming its a head gasket, I did a compression test and it was around 150,155, psi, I'm no mechanic but that's
not bad compression for 30 years old bike with 92,000km or 57,166miles.
Just wondering, if its a blown head gasket would I get a lot less compression or any compression at all?
removed all the oil and fill it up with new oil, now the next step is to start her up without radiator
need to know if she's ok no internal noises etc.
will try tomorrow as my battery is flat.
anyone fill free to reply as I need as much help as I can thank you
