The engine is now rebuilt after the breakdown this summer. Feels and sounds better than when I bought it, so thats good 🙂
Got the new parts mounted; springer, fat spokes with Shinko tires, new gas tank, made a rear fender and sissybar, solid struts and some other small things. License plate and rear light bracket is next, and then make a seat. Also thinking of making a shotgun exhaust for it.
During the winter I will take things apart again, paint and refurbish many things on it… Gas tank and rear fender will get a dark base color, black or dark brown, and some kind of old school grafix in dark gold and dark grey… Might even flake it a little 🙂
