Thanks for the ad. Here is my project. 1974 model, one owner since new. My father in law gave it to me and I want to get it back on the road. It was sitting in his shed for a few years so I am not sure what needs doing apart from what he told me.
Sump plug needs a helicoil and new plug,
Kick starter req's reweld,
Probably a cylinder head hone,

As Shane said on FB, she is a '75 model 'M', NOT a '74 'L' model. Shane knows his stuff and He is worth listening to re. these earlier models (I have a '74 TC100L and rest of my bikes are ER's, so no expert with the earlier ones.)
And please read this re. images (Sorry for any inconvenience!).....
Nice bike you have there. Simply love the graphix and colours of the '70's models! Worth getting a new k/s shaft and k/s. k/s shaft can be replaced by simply removing the clutch side cover. Wouldn't hurt to stick a new oil seal in there too as welding (really, I mean really?!) is not a good idea.
Feel free to look around the forum and share as many photos as you like, using ImgBB or similar (see above)...
That's going to clean up really nice, attack the rust on the chrome with steel wool first, I like to use the type that has soap on the pads, it seems to help a bit to lubricate as you do it. Then use some Autosol to polish it right up.
