Brake disassembly. Really gunky Ďbrake fluidí but everything seems in good shape - including pistons and rubbers.

Started cleaning up the rear (leftmost one).

Iíve been pretty terrible at updating here, but although going has been slow Iíve not been idle. Swinger, forks and wheels are on - we got ourselves a roller!

Next up is sorting out handlebar controls and headlight mounts so I can get started on the wiring.

Nothing dramatic with the wiring. Ditching some stuff (fuel level, gear indicator), relocating some (ignition under the seat) and replacing R/R. Read about a mod to run stator directly to R/R rather than through head lamp switch and R/R output directly to battery (inline fuse). The stator to R/R extra circuit is apparently prone to overheating, so thatís in the plan. Overall cleaning or replacing connections and wires where needed.

Any tips or recommendations?
