A Reader's Comment:

In my youth, I had a '67 TC200. It is a nice machine and I was very happy with it, however, it had one minor, but fatal flaw. The tools are provided in a cheap cloth bag stored inside the left side cover, directly above the chain. The problem is that if the bag deteriorates unnoticed, and a tool should fall out, it can get caught on the chain therby ripping open the crankcase. I know because that is exactly what happened to mine.

I couldn't afford to repair it, and sold it for $50 for parts. I heard later the guy just happened to be a heliarc welder, and had managed to weld the case shut with the result being a perfectly good motorcycle at a bargain price.
