This is great.  If you really want to patina that copper, you need a fume chamber.  Buy one of those cheap clear storage bins big enough to fit the tank with extra room from WalMart, fill the bottom full of rags and dampen (not soak) them with a mixture of ammonia and salt.  Then, suspend the tank in the bin with some wire for a weekend.  Horse urine also works.  ;)

Sorry Eric - I went WAY south.  Headed through Charleston to get hitched, and then crashed in Alabama with my folks for a few days.  I could have done all of those things for the CL mufflers =).  I owe you a couple for sure.

Thanks for the tip!  I left the 360 tank on the side of the road (trying not to horde things "just in case" unless its a "most likely will need that") and in true alabama fashion is was gone in less than 5 min.  I'm doing a slightly different thing for the CB450 tank but planned to use the same copper paint for part of it.  I'm liable to try it again.  So far the best thing i'd tried was human piss.  Don't have access to a horse out here in AZ, which is a shame, though I'm pretty comfortable around them - I could probably get some if I tried hard enough.

  Oh, so you probably went right by my house (I live a half a mile from I-20 in Augusta).  I could've drank Trek's beers for him.  Congrats on getting' hitched.  You know that tank probably got scrapped, right?  ;)

Yup - doesn't bother me at all.  Tried to give it away in a couple places and there weren't any takers.

I did drive right by your place =)  If either of you are ever in central AZ (avoid the summers) then ill make good on those beers.

Finally unpacked my multimeter and tested my coils.  at this point I can't even remember which symptom led someone to believe that my coils should be tested, but I did it.

left side: 4.8 OHMS
right side: went nuts O.L.

seems like the culprit.

Now I work on random things that are free (like shaving the seat pan, and skimming bondo onto the new tank)

Next piece of employment will lead to replacement coils.

Thanks man. Had a killer find today. $20



Which is enough leather to make a lot of mistakes covering my modified seat...



It mostly fits in my car, which is good enough for me...



Also had a bunch of 3" elastic webbing that I'm sure will come in handy, as well as some HD Zippers.

I hope to make a tool bag/ wrap and maybe some grip wrap..... And streamers and a bullwhip. Also found a really stupid Harley part that I'm saving up for (its a secret and its for this build)

Still too hot to put my workbench together from the move (much less work outside on it) is it October yet? Heading to Seattle next week for my honeymoon. That will be a nice change. I love being on the road. Just the dog, the wife, and a tent.

I've also got a stupid exhaust question. The slip on CL pipe is supposed to have some sort of gasket? I don't have that. Any hints on how to get one? Either they aren't for sale new or used, or I'm searching the wrong key words (I hope its the second)

in addition to the stupid exhaust question . . . I'm looking at McMaster Carr for rear set linkages (distant future) and came to a question: Do I need a Left and Right hand thread for each rod?

Here is the set up I am thinking about.

M6 Threaded Rod: (may be over kill, but the price on clevis and eyelets are astronomically cheaper)
Ball Joint End
Clevis End
Metal Rod with ID matching the M6 (1/4"-ish)
LocK Nuts (probably Nylock - why not?)

Does one of these need to be RHT and the other LHT?

I'm not sure.
