We stayed up that night and put the well hammered CR together to see just what we were in for. One kick and she started right up. Yes, it was smoking and every single bolt was bent or broken, but it was a starting point. Kind of like a Charlie Brown Christmas tree... it just needed a little love. Carson spun some laps on the CR60 and got a pretty good feel for it. Carson, being the test rider that he is, said "I need more compression in the forks, slower rebound in the rear, the front brake to grab 10 times harder", etc, etc. This is where I broke the news to him that there were no adjustments back in 1983. Actually, alot of things are different now than 1983. They weren't doing nose wheelies, they weren't jumping the big triple, and they for sure weren't skimming the whoops! He said "what were they doing then?" Well, for one, they were doing a top end job in ten minutes! These air cooled bikes are simple.Our first step was to make a plan. Carson wanted to get the bike good enough to race for fun in the local 65 expert class. This wasn't going to be easy. These kids fly on 65s these days. I had my own idea of what the bike should look like. A WORKS Honda from the early 80s. We started by taking the bike completely apart and laying everything out. We decided to pretty much make everything, just like Honda did on their factory WORKS bikes.
