Nothing better than a box of parts! I just ordered rearsets from Durgam_K! So stoked!

Good for you Shred!!  I'm supposed to get an invoice soon for the rearsets.  Hopefully Durgam_K won't run out!   :(

At first glance your wiring diagram looks pretty good, except you are missing the brake light switch for the front brake.  Since your braking should be done mostly with your front brake this is pretty important.

Good eye ridesolo.  I knew it was missing this switch.  I've mulled this around a little.  Since I never apply just the front brake, it seems logical that one switch would suffice.  But, it's always better to be safe, so a front brake light switch is probably prudent.

The factory marks NEED to be lined up for proper shoe adjustment so both shoes apply pressure to drum evenly and simultaneously.

heres a link to an old post I made in my cb360 info blog about this topic...keep scrolling down past all the hunting B.S. and the hot chicks...you'll find it.

Thanks Trek -
Good eye on the mismatch.  I put these together for the photo, but will definitely align these when assembly time comes.  Waiting on new wheel bearings for front and back, then I'll get things together properly.

I really like the look of drum brake housings.  Just so mechanical in form and function.

Thanks for the link.  Good info on wheel bearing replacement too.

Same here.  and once adjusted I believe I could lock up my front tire just the same as I could w any disc.  :o  Also, its not like Im racing this machine...so drum provides plenty of stopping power for me.

Wheel bearings showed up today.  Now I can put off the wiring by working on the wheels.  I think I'm going to have a love-hate relationship with the rewiring.

For now, cut out the seat pan, got it just so, and welded her in place.







My welding skill leaves a lot to be desired.  All I have is a cheap HF stick welder, but it does the job.

I understand the whole weight thing. 
But, Why on earth would you want to kickstart your bike?   If I had to kick her every time, (especially while trouble shooting) this whole motorcycle thing would be a lot less fun.  To me, the extra 10lbs + or - is worth it.

Well, being 60 years old, I may change my mind and go back to electric start if I have trouble with it starting.  For now I like the idea of being "old school".

Thanks BL.

Still waiting on tank repair.  Heading into KC for green paint tomorrow.  I think I'll end up picking the color from paint chips.  There are so many different types of "British Racing Green".  Got my wheel bearings in so that's probably the next job.
