After 3 day's of hit the road and endurance the "where does this road lead and end".
I must say i am impressed by the little (heavy) bantam.

-Great 2-3-4 gear!
-Ignition works flawless (with irridium spark plug)
-Easy to tweak amal carb
-Reasonable fuel consuption (5L-100km)

The BAD:
-Jumps out of first gear when in high rpm.

-Leak at bottom of cilinder (left) *DONE*
-Minor leak at top of cilinder *DONE*
-Slightly loose exhaust pipe *Done*

- Other fuel switch
- Longer clutch handel (engine) -> Softer clutch operation. *DONE*
- Easy way to check oil level...

The good:

The bad:
-Parking the bike on soft ground -> side stand
