Most every bolt, screw and nut is rusted, so there will be lots of this...



Turned into this...

Where do you source that hardware around here?

Fastenall that was near me shut down.

I'm sure Lowes or Home Depot probably has it too.

Just thought you might have a preference.

I'm in man. So happy you ended up with this over the xt350. That is one heck of a good starting point and already a solid mule. Can't wait to see you put the irk miller touch on it.

I've got a pretty good ACE hardware in town that has a decent metric selection. HD and Lowes have a terrible selection of metric. McMaster Carr has everything but they're a bit pricey, I find its worth it to go through them if you want packs of 50 or 100.

Knowing Eric he probably makes them from scratch  ;)

The Fastenal on Washington Rd in Evans is where I go locally.  I hope that's not the one that shut down.  There's one in Harlem I go to sometimes, too. Otherwise, I order from McMaster-Carr.  They have a warehouse in Atlanta, so bits are here by 10am the next morning.  I keep stuff in stock, so I prefer to buy in quantity.

We are going to try a Mikuni TM-33 pumper carb. They came stock on DR350’s, so hopefully it translates here.

I should’ve taken pics from when it was painted orange and green.
