I have been doing lots of little projects but not posting much. I just get my head into the work and forget. I've been cleaning, brushing, painting a bunch of bits and soaking others in vinegar or Evaporust. I sanded and polished/painted the stator cover today, hard to get a good picture but I'm pretty happy with it. There was a good scratch in it that I am not going to try and remove it's not nearly as noticeable in person. Painting the starter, brake strut and front "bobbed" front fender today.

Coming from this:

never heard of persoue, like anything vintage it's worth whatever someone will pay :-\
Vinegar is great for removing rust and cleaning up nuts & bolts, just don't soak anything for over 24 hours it is an acid after all

Sweet work on the cases!!!  Drilling the oil port may cause issues , by starving oil from other places. It is an open debate butt i wouldn't do it if i where you. As far as clip ons you would need a shorter brake cable for sure. The tacho cable i dont know if they make that shorter i have read some guys using one from the smaller cb models.The clutch cable should be fine.

Questions....

My serial # isn't punched, how do I check if the recall was done?


You have to pull the valve cover off and then pull the tensioner retainer off and then pull the thing out and look.  The bike being a 74 would be really good chance it didn't get it if the number isn't punched.  There was another recall to do with the rocker shafts. They changed them as well to a different type as well.

First that there is something there and that if it has had the recall done, the ends of the tensioner curl AWAY from the cam chain.  The old ones curl TOWARDS it.  Pull it out and make sure both ends are there.

This what a replacement one looks like
