Thank you Brother ponycarman, your compliment means a lot!

Brother Glenn that is a nice power file! The fins on this cylinder head had some heavy uneven casting in a few areas and I did file them by hand. I really like crafting by hand but I almost bought a power file a while back, have you used it yet? Let us know how you like it!

Brother Habanero ordered new cam bearing housings for this engine, the castings were a little rough around the edges and had a couple of dings in them so today I filed, sanded, and started the first stage of polishing them as well as the original points cover. I also removed the red lettering from the stator cover and polished the letters.

For those of you that have not seen this photo, here is how she looked when we started!



I am still polishing the covers but here is how they look so far.

Something about the polish vs. the sandblasted surface is bugging me........
dunno. Looks tidy though.

Mr. Swagger, I understand where you are coming from and respect your opinion very much.
Personally I beleive that it will take a bit getting use to since it is a very different look and an uncommon one!
I believe that it makes for very nice contrasts and flows of textures and colors.
Most of all, it is different withoiut any radical chromatic effects, and that achieves what I have been looking for.
 :) ;D

Good point, it's easy to get caught up in the 'rut'.....I'll wait and see the whole thing together in the bike. Speaking of which, what are you plans for the bike itself?

Hey Joe, This will show you how lazy I am, on minimus I did the fin edges by hand like you have done here. I really like the look and I will be doing it again on the 400, but it can be time consuming.

No more....I bought this, lol,

That's nothing.  I bought THIS for my fins.

I ended up doing a polished alternator with a brushed-look left case cover and I think it turned out pretty well, too.  Good choice.  :)

As one who does not know the inner workings of a motorcycle engine, this has been very educational. That is a GREAT looking engine!
