I previously had this bike posted in the cafe racer section but I decided that I wanted a stocker instead! I bought this bike about 4 months ago and since then have put it on the back burner. Now that I've finished IB, graduated high school, and registered for college I can spend some quality time with my bike. Here is a picture of it the day I bought it.
It has lots of rust on it and needs some love. My plan with this build is to keep the stock feel but change some things like colors, bars, mirrors, etc. to get a sleeker look. I got it running last week for the first time since I bought it. The carbs needed a thorough cleaning. After some adjusting It idled steadily and had no problems. And it started on the first kick! I started the disassebly today so I can get the frame and other bits off to the powdercoaters. I'm am taking a break from the 100+ degree weather right now so I snapped a picture of where I'm at. I'm looking to paint the tank and side covers a deep metallic blue.
