It's supposed to be a classic. Not sure what it's a classic example of though. Definitely not my cup of tea but good luck to anyone who wants one.

It's NOT seized :yay: before i set off home i took the plug out and squirted a good amount of WD40 down the hole, and as i can't sleep i decided to take some covers off, the flywheel is dry and free running, the wiring inside looks brand new, took the head off and gave the piston a gentle push with a screwdriver handle and with a little jiggle of the cylinder it moved, put head back on and the piston moves freely, there is some compression but as everything is loose i can't do a proper compression test yet, but all the signs are looking promising :thumb:

So your solution to insomnia is to get up and take the head off a moped?
