    I have always thought it would be handy to have another 75 to play mechanic on so I wouldn't screw up the 75 that I ride
    2 weeks ago on Craigslist I saw 2 650's for sale about 90 miles from me (central MN) I offered him some cash and last week Sat I brought home a 75 and a 78
    I haven't touched the 78 but putzed a little on the 75 put battery in new glass fuse I now have a neutral light and turn signals working No spark yet
    And the great thing is on my running 75 I had installed the Pamco system (Thanks Pete) and the PMA so I have all the old parts to put on the new one
    I don't know about the 78 but the 75 is something even I might be able to get running
    Thanks to ALL of you guys for helping put me in this predicament

    You are most welcome Mike - it is gratifying that you have finally acknowledged that one motorcycle is simply not enough.

    '78 was a good year. There's potential in that one too, even if only as a parts source. Things like the forks and carbs could be used to "update" that "new" '75.

    You can always fix the 75 till you can't fix it no more, then start on the 78.
