Well I found my thread back on page 12
, so I guess it's time for an update. I finally got my tank painted after sanding about 10 times. There's some sort of coating on it from a previous owner and everytime I'd put some paint down it would bubble.
I got sick of dealing with it so to hell with it, it's good enough. I'm not trying to build a show winner anyway.
I also got all my new controls from Dime City Cycles of this site. Thanks again!!! New waffle grips, double pull throttle tube and a new clutch lever and perch. Good stuff at a good price. Gracias'
Made some new little brackets for my ignition switchs and the cockpit is now done.
Nice and simple - two switches.
Went back and bought a used set of coils off ebay $5.99 with shipping. Sweet! I came to the realization that I don't need to over load the spark boxes and have it fail in the middle of no where.
So I made up a small gas tank and cranked it till I hade oil pressure. Hooked my coil power wire VROOM VROOM . It's alive!!
Let it warm up some and took it for a spin around the block!
Now for a seat those frame rails hurt!
