Test Drive-

 

Chad rode with the owner for several miles, and then Chad drove for several miles coming back. Engine starts easily, and runs very smoothly. You have to pump it a couple of times when cold as it does not have a choke set up. Upon acceleration the engine runs and pulls well. The clutch operation all appears to be correct. The shifting of all 4 gears, reverse, and both up shifting and down shifting all works extremely smooth without any interference. Upon stopping the disc brakes stop it well, and it does not seem to pull. The steering works good, it has a little typical wander as it is a gear box and not a rack, but over all a very easy, simple, and nice car to drive.
