I'm going to be looking at an 79 Special this week, has 7xxx miles on it. Current owner just put new wires and plugs in, plus fork boots. Some other recent work was fresh oil, carbs cleaned, timing chain adjusted, points adjusted, clutch adjusted, new fuel and vac lines. He does say that the battery in it does not hold a charge for more than a week, but it kick starts pretty easily, thinking this is an alternator issue?
Anyway, if any of ya'll have/had one and can give me some tips on things to look out for, let me know!
