Partially orange. Painting sides covers this weekend. Hopefully.

If I have an extra spare stock one you can have it for the cost of shipping. I need to check my parts bins but I may take the one off the spare motor which this would have to replace if I don't have a spare. I'll keep you up to date when I start messing with the bike.



Thank you.    Mine is in pieces but I do have a thing for the cb550.

Currently in process of doing valves and timing along with redoing the harness to sort out a gremlin that is popping the 15a fuse. Attempting to start may not happen this weekend. Maybe Sunday will work depending of progress.

Ordered new tires today in hopes to participate in the Kentucky Dakar at the Thaw.

Next are bars. I'll go look at some tomorrow and may make a decision.

Nice! Hopefully mine show up. I installed our tire changer outside handy hut over the weekend.

Indykids may be weird as hell but we are a good group of dudes. My buddy came over tonight and wrenched for me. He managed to get it to start which was a huge step. Carbs need completely gone through. An idle jet was completely clogged. There also seems to be an issue where fuel isn't reaching the bowl of another. But. It did idle smooth and sounded great. A little more labor and it should be running in tip top shape.
