Indie kids are weird. I hear the definition of adventure is taking inappropriate equipment to out of the way places though so this should be fun to watch.

Didn't get as much done as I had hoped this weekend. Spent a lot of time working on our laundry room and half-bath remodel.

I managed to get the carbs broke down and will be soaking them tonight. Carb rebuild kit came in along with an All Balls fork seal kit. My Sonic Springs should be in this week and then I can rebuild/refresh the front end

Well per usual I suck at keeping build threads updated. Also, am lazy and haven't made as much progress as I should.

Got all of my suspension bits in...front end has new sonic springs, cartridge emulators, fork seals and Preload adjusting fork tube caps. Also got my rear shocks in and mocked up. I raised the rear up to 14" using Hagons with 110lb springs.

Mocked up the rear fender as well. I have a stock grab bar that I like but it is slightly bent.  I plan to build side racks for panniers and may just go ahead and fab a new grab bar that will be integrated with the racks.

I plan to get the engine in the frame this weekend and figure out what shape it's in. The PO said it ran so hopefully it won't take too much work, then I can remove the blue.

Loooooong over-do for an update...


A few weeks ago Tifun came by and we got the blue motor mounted in the frame (and smashed my finger, thanks Keith)








Replaced the alternator/stator with a spare I had (most of my spares come from my 74 cafe I built a few years back...you can see it in pieces in some of the pictures...someday)



The PO, besides having poor taste in engine color, had the starter wired with an 8ga wire or something huge. Swapped it and the oil pump and drained the oil in the motor. And drank lots of beer



At Barber, last fall, I picked up used set of KLR bars for $10 at the swap.  Drilled/cut slots to run the wires internally and then took them to the Handy Hut (Keith's) to blast them.  They woudn't fit in his powder oven so I opted for Rustoleum Textured black and sprayed them.  Turned okay for a scrambler/daily bike.






The Hoodcats are coming over tonight for bike night (that's where we sit and drink in the garage)  and hopefully can get the valves checked, mount exhaust and carbs and work on wiring.

Progress is being made. Swapped the wiring harness from my 74 and hooked it up, exhaust is mounted, carbs will be on today, rear brake is setup-ish and other little small things. Still need to purchase a few items...taillight, grips, battery, mufflers, stem bearings, and brake rebuild kits.

I hope to have it running within the next week and then I can go back through a clean stuff up, like no more blue engine. Also, have to fab up front and rear fenders and if time, saddlebag frames and a rear rack. Lots to do!!
