Here is my "To Do" list


Seal fuel tank
Clean and paint
*hubs
*brake calipers
*drum brake
*battery box
*exhaust flange
*fuel tank
*clutch and brake lever?
*Intake manifolds
*Rear block plate

Change oil
Top off rear end oil

fab new gauge mount

figure out what I am going to do with the exhaust - High temp paint, wrap or buy new

Polish (or paint) triple trees and fork lowers.

Stuff to buy (some is wish list or will have to wait)
Fork caps
Rearset linkage
Tail light
Front brake pressure switch
exhaust
   wrap?
   New pipes and H pipe?
   Mufflers
Green LED for neutral light
Headlight
Headlight mounts
Mirror
Velocity stacks
Shocks
Wire harness wrap


Getting close. I almost have the tank and fender ready for paint, but the weather is not looking good for painting anytime soon. Way to hot and humid. But I have a lot of other projects and assembly to keep me occupied.

I'm going to get vinyl stickers made for my indents.  Something like this:




Playing with ideas for the tank logo. Would be slightly lower after I fill in the circle indents.
This is just etch primer and rattle can silver paint.

Rearset linkage  Tarozzi: http://www.mgcycle.com/index.php?manufacturers_id=103

Shocks  Hagon:  https://www.davequinnmotorcycles.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/Hagon.html

Tarozzi makes a good fork brace, too.  Improves the front end a lot.

I was thinking of going that route, but when I was looking for something off the shelf that would fit, I found that I really like the more modern eagle (but it looks a little Nazi WWII-ish with the green primer). Hope it doesn't have that look when painted on light blue in black paint.

BTW: it has been a pain to get those indents filed in and smooth. I just did the filler primer last night, so I am close to being ready to paint.


I have a combo of Tarozzi and DCC rearsets. Since there is not a kit that works on the drum brake, I have to make it myself. I just need to get it back together and buy some aluminum tube and some hemi joints.

Hagon shocks will probably be out of my budget. the guy I bought the bike from said he thought the shocks on it now were bad. I only rode the bike a few miles (in suburban traffic) so I couldn't tell. I was riding with no plates and the bike was so odd that I didn't have an opportunity to pay attention to them. I know I want to change them out regardless as they have plastic caps and look like crap.

I think Hagons are overpriced for what they offer, in the UK they've always been the budget option. I went for YSS shocks, cheaper than Hagons and imo better quality too.
