I was recently lucky enough to score a Yamaha 125 DT 1978 motorcycle for free off of Craigslist. It had been sitting in the barn for some time ( the last time it was registered was 2008.) and the guy didn't know too much about it as it was a project bike that he had taken on that he no longer have time for.
From all outward appearances it looks like it ran out of gas and was placed in the barn as all of the parts are there and it doesn't look like that it was torn into at all.
The back tire will not move and the chain is tighter than hell and I'm about to remove the back tire and see if maybe that has something to do with it.. (by being bound up too tightly.) I've tried to find videos and blogs about how/where to find out what is causing the engine to not turn over but I have been unable to locate anything that has been very direct or to the point that I could understand.
I'm mechanically inclined but being this is my first motorcycle I don't know where to start. ( any and all comments are welcome. I appreciate your time, effort and energy everybody, thank you!) :,)
