Rach just said "Xylene is a really strong solvent, and she cant imagine it NOT melting rubber."  So maybe I should check every 3 hours???

Listen to her, wives know stuff.  I was just poking through old parts I have some carb bits and other cm stuff.  I have a good head and cam etc should you need.  It would be yours for shipping cost.  I have some peg brackets and othe stuff.  My wife would love it to be mailed away lol.

these handlebars and turn signal stems are pretty rough.   The battery tray is pretty rusted but I believe its solid and just needs blasting and epoxy.  If you got a cdi, I would really be interested in having a working spare on the shelf.

Im not going to plan on working to make her pretty til this winter.  But parts is parts.

Xylol

Funny stuff.

I know they use it in some permanent markers.

Get some Alfoil onto those crusty chrome parts. It cleans them up well enough for a small time.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

I've read about a guy keeping parts in that stuff for 6 months and it was totally unharmed.

Cool, but I plan on riding her sooner than that.   ;)
Rach is a Histology technician in the lab.  Shes pretty knowledgable about these chemical things.
