See there now "You" know how to lift a guy up and encourage him to work hard on the shitty-ness.

Not like those other Buttholes. 

Yeah, ok... so, have you got this piece of crap done yet?  Come on loser, shag your ass and get moving.  No more bourbon for you until it's completely done, and don't even THINK of firing up a cigar!

(There, is that better?  Dang, some of these people are so sensitive!)

I just wanted to see the best motorcycle restorer I know personally restore my favorite Honda.  If that makes me a butthole, I will proudly accept that descriptor and exit stage left, because meticulously polishing every single spoke and Hobby Lobby fake rust together makes perfect sense.

Nobody is a butthole.  lol 

I thought you, most of all, would embrace that its a sculpture. 

A sculpture that will go 100+mph.  :). #itsartmotherfucker

With the "NEVER GIVE UP" attitude the Black Knight is famous for, the battle rages on...



This "looks" like it should pivot...It dont.   :P



Lots of time and effort, penetrant and heat gun and slowly working it to start twisting...its freed.

O-rings...ARGH!





HOORAY...Still available from local Honda dealer.



20 minutes spent boiling penetrant w heat gun, pounding and careful twisting.



It finally gives...just a little.



After another hour of boiling, penetrant, twisting and pounding...repeat..repeat, etc etc

Surprised the penetrant never did make it all the way to the center.



Cleaning w an old brass bore brush and brass wheel.





Ready and waiting for o-rings and grease.

Might pay to tap and add a grease nipple. Function before form.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
Sr250, Gs750, Z50A, XV1100, A10, Z160A.
