The less good: My top radiator tank has pinhole leaks, so I’ll be buying a propane torch and learning how to patch a rad. Good thing to know in case it springs more leaks in the middle of nowhere.

The particularly not good: The tops of my rear fenders are rusting. That’s where the rear seatbelts bolt onto. So I’ll be buying an angle grinder, cutting the rusty parts out, and getting a friend to weld a couple plates in.
