Time in the shop at last!  Finally got back at the bike and started to tear down the forks for a rebuild.  Of course, with all the tools I have you'd think there'd be an 8mm T-handle there somewhere, right?  Of course not; back to the hardware again.  Anyway,  a couple of pix:



On another issue, I'm going to be using a digital speedo so I won't be using the drive on the front wheel .  What's the standard practice with these?  Leave it in place?  Replace it w/ a spacer?



At this point I'm still not 100% on this tank and I threw this seat pan on to just see what it would look like. 



At least maybe I can start making some real progress.

Thank you sir!.  I think it'll work out fine.  The Mrs. really likes that color and thinks the whole bike would look good in it.  I like it too, but had to explain to her that, while the whole bike is completely non-traditional, I would really have trouble putting a Honda into a Kawasaki color.  I don't think she agreed w/ me but oh well.

New fork seals are on the way.  Disassembled the first fork stanchion today.  Even with the right tool in hand it took a lot of leverage with a very long handle to get the one axle pinch bolt to pop loose.  Once that was out of the way everything went fairly well for 13 year old parts that probably have never been apart.  The fork oil even looked relatively good, but, though they weren't leaking, the seals are due for replacement.

Just interested how high is that nice moto desk out of wood you build?
Is it comfortable ( :-) ) to work on?

Yeah, it's already been thrown out, was just waiting to measure it out so I know how much for replacement. 

Speaking of fork oil, I've read differing opinions on here: fork oil vs. ATF.  What's the current consensus on that?  What does the viscosity of ATF work out to compared to motor oil compared to fork oil?

It's 17.5" high X 23" wide X 72" long.  The length was by design, the width and height were determined by what I had in scrap lumber laying around.  It is a nice height but it was based on the length of the shortest hunk of 4X4 I had.  Could be higher and it would be ok, but it works.  I had just bought a Kreg so it was a perfect way to experiment with it.

I have a similar one I built. Height is 18" on mine, and longer and a bit wider, but I love it. Put it on wheels so I can roll it around. Can sit on a stool to do all my wrenching, no standing up all day.

Great use of some scrap lumber.

Thanx!  Great use of a Kreg, too.  Those things are worth the $$ if you work w/ wood at all.  Its about right for a rolling shop stool but not so low that it's tough on the back if you are standing.

My bench is higher than 18". Ill measure later but idk how much. It was on the verge of being too tall, and then I put casters on it putting it another 4" or so in the air. It also makes it an interesting exercise to put a bike on/off of it.

The height of mine works pretty well for moving the 360 engine around.  I have it sitting on a small dolly and I can wheel that off the work table directly onto the motorcycle jack without trying to lift it by myself.  I like the caster idea.  Next time I am onto HF I'll check to see if they have some that'll attach to the bottom of the 4X4 legs.  Stuff doesn't roll well on my soft floor, though.
