The Motorcycle Mechanic

This guy has sheds full of half put together motorcycles, and makes a living working on them in his back yard, especial off ones that have been smuggled into the country. There's very little information available in Chinese about how to work on these illegal bikes, and there's a certain degree of risk involved so he's able to charge much more. The last five pictures are of this cool little moped  from the 70's or 80' that's really hard to find anymore. It was made by a company called Li Ming. He said the thing had been sitting around for 10 years but he got it running and we all took turns driving it around the courtyard

According to me Eric Jones is really an amazing motorcycle mechanic. The photographs show that he is a talented guy. I want to get some knowledge from you that how to solve the engine heating problem of a motorcycle?

The key is Gatorade, it not only quenches human thirst, it quenches motor thirst too.
