New to a forum

Greetings! Thank you very much for letting me join, I hope to pick up a lot of information from everyone here, I’m new to forums in general so I hope this works out. Don’t hesitate to tell me if I’m making mistakes. I just bought an 85’ Shadow 700 and I’m doing my best to restore it. I’ve run into a few issues and I’m hoping to reach out for help. Parts, advice, how to’s anything is appreciated!

Welcome!

These folks have helped me immensely with my 86 700 so don't be afraid to ask questions. A lot of knowledge here. And some [email protected] too

@ Chewsifer is right.

Here we have some smart asses, and wise asses, and dumb asses, and we use the SWAG diagnostic system = Scientific Wild Ass Guesses. Me included.



But we mean well.

I’m not easily offended, I hope to avoid the dumbass category, but that’s why I’m here! SWAG is a good philosophy, a hair better than the Soviet era “guess and check” method to space flight lol. If it fails, we try again
