So my new bike was delivered today. A lovely 1973 CZ 175 type 477. I came home early from work and it arrived around 3:00. The man who delivered it was a friend of the owner and he was really, very nice. He gave me a complete run down of the bike (cept for the gears) and we had a good ol' chat about it. He was very helpful so props to him. I don't have my license yet and the bike isn't registered, so I'm extra anxious to take it for a spin. My mate come over and we thought we would start it up just to hear it... The coolest thing on this bike is the gear selector is also the kick start. Starting it up is so fun! haha. Now that its running, just a quick ride wont hurt.. So clutch in, one click down... Right? Well not on my bike. After a little while, we discover the gear system is the opposite. One click UP is first gear. But, the thing that got us stumped was, there was a neutral gear between third and fourth, so I just assumed I was moving down from neutral into first. Clearly it sounded as if I was trying to start in fourth, so we managed to work it out But the bike rides really well and I'm so happy with it. Still no serious riding though, looking forward to my first real ride. I took a few photos in my driveway, I want to take some nicer ones soon, but here they are!
