1970 Super Cub Engine Ready to Run!

We're getting to the good parts of this 1970 Super Cub restoration! Tariq at www.cttrailbikes.com sent me a new set of pictures from his shop that show the engine completely back together and looking as though it did when it rolled off the assembly line 39 years ago. He's going to run it for a while to make sure all is well, and then ship it back here for mounting on the frame, etc... This may be the first time ever that a C70M has been both increased to 90cc and had a 4-speed transmission upgrade (standard is 3-speed, like all early Super Cubs). I can't wait to open the crate and get to work!
