I worked on the R50 all day today. I didn't even ride it and I had a great time. I recently got my first parts order and today I finished installing/replacing all those bits. The front brakes now work reasonably well and I have a mirror! Safety first! I also replaced the throttle cables, clutch cable, oil drain plug, and spark plug wires. The plug wires made a big difference, the bike starts a little more easily now.
