New member and first time owner. I finalized purchasing Old Blue two weeks ago. I've been visiting and reading the forum as a guest for several months (when I first saw and photographed Old Blue). I decided it is time to get serious about ownership. He rattles and wheezes but never fails. He has become my daily driver because I want to become familiar with him as well as feel confident before taking him onto a trail. Other than the removed air conditioning condensor, everything is seems original. The speedometer is not accurate so I gauge my speed by those around me. Hopefully, it is an easy fix.
