P.S.  It is an unwritten rule here that you have to donate a coppertone Tiger to the second person to respond to your first post!   ;)

Thanks for all the responses, this was the only bike, is was sitting for years and he said it was doing no good. I just started tearing it apart to detail, thanks again for all the nice responses.
