So, I picked up a 1980 150 this weekend (pics to and have some questions them as this is my first I’ll start with I do know about it. It was last in 2000 in Nebraska.

The title its a 125 but on the fan on the motor it says 150, going to guess its a 150 based on It ran when parked but the PO said was some sort of rattle in the The motor looks pretty and feels tight but on about 4th or 5th lick it locks up and I have to the fan by hand before I can get it to kick

I put in a battery and shot the carb some starter fluid and it fire up but dies after 30-40 seconds. I’m assuming it needs a little fresh and it should run. As the PO said, is something knocking about its running and I suspect its whatever is it to lock up when I try to kick it.

all its in really good condition, no rust, scratches or dents than on the motor side I’m missing one mirror and some of the seals around the rear the motor side is totally and the other side is missing of it. The original tool set is there but I’m missing some of the tools. are four lock cylinders on the one for the ignition, one for the glove box, one for the cover and a steering lock.

The steering lock and glove box the same key but the batter/tool cover has a one, is this typical or did switch out one of the locks at some The one for the glove box has Bajaj stamped on it and the one looks like a hardware replacement key.

The paint is pretty good on it but like somebody got a little too with a paint roller, are specks of white paint on it in spots, anybody have any tricks for getting that of stuff off? I tried a bit of paint thinner on a hidden but it takes the original orange off, I’d rather leave on #61514;… The chrome on the turn is pretty roached out but the headlight and tail light are both good, the floor board and leg shield chrome are good but a good cleaning, like the of it.

The gas tank is full and needs to be of the old fuel/oil before I even try the tap. Is there anything I know before removing the Is there a way to stop fuel pouring out when I lift the out of the body? My girlfriend is very about the patio and has already that I will suffer a deal if I make an EPA disaster out of it #61514;

Lastly, is the 12v conversion worth it? I have had numerous 6v and haven’t had any issues with or running them on 6v, this a 1950 Sunbeam S8, a very hungry bike with a system made by the prince of himself, Lucas. For those of you are running 6v still and have dim try cleaning the contacts in the switches and the in the lights.

I’ve found this to to a world of difference. Also, try in a modern gel battery, I just put in a battery and my lights are bright and I only run gels now, cost a little more up but I only have to replace after 5-7 years rather every 2-3 years.

I really welcome and appreciate any on this thing and look to hearing from other owners on what has worked for Any good tips and tricks are
