My old 47 Pre Unit came with a tenant.I had noticed some small spiderwebs around the carb & seat since I got the bike.I had yanked them off every few days not giving much thought to it. I was joking with Keith from Moores the other night about the spiderwebs and maybe a Black Widow was making them...and would call the bike the Black Widow. I have been pulling the carb on and off for the last few weeks trying to make it run.I went out late Sunday night to get a feel for the handlebars & seat I put on earlier in the day,I sat on the bike grabbed the bars,looked down and there was old red belly! Siting on the nose of the seat right between the legs.My first thought was to burn him with with the old stand by( wd40 & a lighter) but used a can of high pressure cleaner( Thanks Jason) instead.The little guy put up a fight but it was just too much to bare. It does sound like much but when you're out in the garage at midnight in your underwear alone...SCARY!!
