It's a go... Starting the engine rebuild next week. Getting a few other parts and throwing it back together.

I'll use this as the build thread... More pictures to come  ;D

Thanks!!

I have most parts I need but I just found out the shifter shaft is stripped and my brother plug welded it on so I need to cut it off.. Checked ebay and couldn't find one to buy  :( . Looks like some wanted ads are going up!

Ya build that thing!! Like was said before the tires went burnt off and the front brake line and speedo bucket look good so the frame should be fine!

Besides that would make for a sweet story every time someone asks about the bike!
Why I wear a full faced helmet. 1. They are safer 2. Keeps the bugs out of my teeth 3. Hides my dorky smile I have because my old bike is actually on the road!

Its up on the lift!!

I hurt my back and I'm on restrictions or the engine would already be out.  ;D

Starting the demo soon to get it running and back on the road.
