Finally got round to pick the C1 up. First thing to do is to clean it, dang it is dirty. It has 6-68 gearing, clutch bell with 6 holes and a silver radiator. Hopefully that radiator is one of the better versions. It has regular coolant in there and that is looking fresh still. At least a good sign.
Will remove the exhaust header to check if there is fluid or oil in there. That might be the issue for the bad idle. Will pull the plug also to get an indication on running condition.

The front fairing is cracked in several places. It doesn't even fit, holes are not lining up and it is rubbing with the front wheel. Looks like the radiator needs to get pulled back in or something like that. And the pegs are massive and probably not original, so will source some smaller ones to get some better ground clearance.
Can't wait to get working on the bike! Ehh ohh first some Christmas stuff to do... :) Enjoy the holidays gentlemen.

Alright, it does run. Only with the choke on. When you have the choke off and rev it a bit it slowly dies out. It will start up everytime on choke though. There is no coolant in the hearder pipe, just a tiny bit of oil/fuel so that should not be an issue I guess. Seems like it is not getting enough fuel probably, so I am taking the carb and reeds out to check them first.
Also the clutch pads are worn unevenly/have rough patches. Maybe they have been too hot. Adjusted the springs and will see if they come back to live for now.
