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.

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.

Going well where I am. Been out riding with a few blokes from work.
The Shop is nearly done. Just a few things outside and a few more storage shelves inside to go. Ohh and an exploded Virago to put back together.

I don't quite move at the pace that you have been with this build!

Nice.  Are you in warm weather most of the year...or looking at a cold winter coming soon?

Best for me to strike while the irons hot.  If I loose my momentum on a project.  Sometimes its hard for me to re-motivate myself.  And I can tend to start putting things on the back burner....forever.    :P

It is warm most of the year here. We are coming into the "colder" months but it never really get a cold here. The coldest it gets is 45f in the dead of night. Most days are around 65f-70f.

So all year riding season if you can cope with the 90% humidity at 100f.
