Welcome! Hard to tell what shape the bike is in from that pic? An old buddy of mine lives in that area.
Looks good,  like Cherry Annie damper.
 Picked up another Betor in the last week, with The fender/brake mounts..good ones for street .you may have to run stiffer springs in your forks if they were off a much lighter bike.

Wilbur to the rescue ;)


I had one of these that I could not get to stop leaking, no matter how much I tightened it! I eventually damaged the petcock before I figured out there used to be a seal between the valve and the tank. It was about that same time I learned about the in-tank filter. I disassembled the damaged valve just to see if it could be done, with reasonable results (except for the damage from over-tightening). I'll post some picts after I dig it out, it's buried pretty deep, might be a week or so before it surfaces....

Now there are aftermarket petcocks (Vintage CB750 I think) that do have a threaded nut that is removable. Took me a couple tries to figure out how those attached. It's a little different than stock since the stem of the valve is threaded too.

First post in this link is what you want.... Clamp them over the stacks...

Perfect! I see they have springs that comes with them to help them from collapsing?

Now to find these!

Swapped brake parts when I flatted, so the dang thing squeaked for the first hundred miles or so...

Finally uploaded the video.

I'll offer a made up hyphenated word - Ru-Glyde.  Use that and you can push 'em on by hand.  (have a glove on to avoid cookie cutter syndrome)
