1980 valves

Finally got a chance to start working on the MNS I bought recently. It ran when I bought it but when I attempted to crank yesterday, it would not start. Pulled the plugs and checked compression and found I have no compression on 2 & 3. I am thinking I dropped some valves cranking it. Anyone know where I can get a set of valves? I have a brand new set of 78 valves I'd trade.

How many miles is on the bike? How long did it sit? You might not need new valves.

Don't know much on the history but it sat at my house only a couple of weeks . No compression on 2 and 3. I suppose they could be stuck but not very good odds that they would stick at the same time.

Check your valve clearance before you commit any dollars to it.
