From LED gauge lights to center stand spring...

This little machine gonna be "all but" brand new underneath. 

And it'll be "our" dirty little secret.   ;D

I decided not to wait for new tubes to arrive from Hong Kong.

Moving forward w fork rebuild...Rusty RAT ROD style.

Draining stinky old fluid I almost lost my lunch a couple times.  haha.  ;D



Sanded the slide zones w 320 emory then hit em w the scotchbrite. 

They came out remarkably smooth.  But I will have to keep a smear of grease on em.



They will get me by for a season or two, 

Until the proper restoration rolls around.



yes heating the old seals for removal...So STINKY!!! 



All buttoned up,

fresh o-rings for caps once installed and filled w new oil.

And the REAL RUST is looking great too...  ;)

New steering bearings...NOT!!!

Sent me the wrong ones.  UGH.   >:(



On the upside.  New fork tubes arrived just in the nick of time. A lot sooner than I expected.   

So I went ahead and got them installed.   :)

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
