My son was 9 years old then when he first repaired a retro Honda CR8O carburetor. The bike has been sleeping for years and the carburetor was filled with stinking fuel slime. He has to use picks, brass brush, small scraper and a screw driver to pry out the chunks of hard sludge sticking on the carburetor. He was a bit clumsy to spill some rotten fuel on his shirt and you know smelly rotten fuel is :)

other repairs

After installing the carburetor, his next move was to start fixing the clutch lever.

It was getting late and we really have to start cleaning-up and head home but my son was still struggling trying to remove the broken clutch lever from the handlebar. Probably my hammer was just too heavy for him...
