Bike looks really good but, and please forgive me of I'm wrong, the headlight brackets look like they are on upside down, or is that what you intended?

Thanks man, honestly Iím not sure. I have Seen them mounted both ways. Once i get Everything installed Iíll see where the light throws the best
Take it from me, I'v made this mistake before.

Hey there! Thanks so much for posting this thread. I was really happy to have come across it! Here is a pic of my 1974 that has been in storage for over 40 years. It was my father-in-laws bike and he bought it in 74. While in storage it got vandalized a bit and some parts were stolen. I took it out of storage a couple years ago and started doing a bit of work on it when I had time. Replaced all engine gaskets, dismantled and cleaned carb, cleaned out the tank and coated the inside, plus a bunch of other minor stuff.... last weekend I got it started, and it now starts 3rd kick and idles at 1200 RPM... I wanted to see if I could get it running before I spend any money on it... and now the restoration will begin!! I'm super pumped and your thread had been awesome to read! I think I may start one to document my journey as well! Cheers!
