Froggy newbie

Post by Frunobulax » Sun Jan 05, 2020 9:08 am

Hi, I'm Gilles, new to the forum. Frenchy. Been lurking the website for a month. I recently acquired an old KR1. So I felt it was time for me to register.
No plan for race regarding this one. I just want to make it serviceable for road use.
Recently I changed some fluids (engine, brake, gearbox), battery and gave it a run.
What an amazing ride! :P
I will soon ask maintenance questions to experts here, hope you won't find me too much boring as I imagine it's always the same with newbies...
Enough blabla, time for pics

Thanks for the welcome. I need some advice for sure, as these bikes apparently requires heavy maintenance for safe operation in service. Will post in the proper section.

I have no idea of this. Was it an oil brand back in the day? Not shure I will keep all those stickers anyway. I would prefer it as original as possible.
