Well, here's the current poop.
I have my Buchanan spokes in hand, and Ryan should be done with the sprocket carrier any minute now
I just made a deal on a carb for the bike, which as often happens to my projects, may become the catalyst for a refocusing of $$$ resources on the bike.
It's a Keihin FCR 41mm carb... which is freakin awesome. But, the engine really needs to be more than stock to justify such a redonkulous carb.
So instead of powdercoating etc.... I think I may spend my life savings on the engine's internals.
90mm 11:1 Wiseco or other piston (540cc's)
White Bros or Megacycle cam
Titanium valve spring retainers and heavy duty springs
Larger valves maybe
Racing clutch plates...
you get the idea
Who knows, I may still end up powdercoating the frame, as it needs something given I've ground all the extra shit off it and am welding on a loop, but I could just spray bomb it.
Might leave the vintage 19" racing rims as they are, in their dirty glory laced with shiny new stainless spokes to my bespoke modified CB750 hubs.
Will be pretty in the best sense of the word. Bare bones focus on performance.
