i was going to head to the store to buy some steel threaded rod, for frame inserts. but i remembered i had 1" stock handle bars from my g3. theyre pretty ugly looking, so i cut them up to make some inserts for the frame loop. the fit was literally perfect! took a little while to get the loop mated with the frame. i still have a small gap i need to sort out before welding. but i'll save that for tuesday.

Meh, it will be fine.  Doesn't look like any spalling on the lobes or rocker pads, either.

+1  Top end looks great.

Double check shock travel against tire to hoop contact.

You  know how many inches of travel it needs?

If it's a rigid it has zero.  LOL.  You need to test for whatever shocks you get, and rated for your bike and your weight.  Should be 3 inches or so, more or less.

Take one shock off and ratchet strap the swingarm to your subframe, crank it down until the shock bottoms out. There's your full travel. If the tire hits your subframe before the shock bottoms out, well...

Cam looks fine, rockers ain't too bad. Does show it's been running with valves too tight though on 3 of the 4 lobes. All the base circles should be 'darker'. Being polished shows rockers were touching cam all the way around. Do oil transfer piece mod while you have clutch cover off

yesterday: i planned out the color scheme, black and polished is what it is. for the patina look i bought a tank from a 1974. i love the orange, with rust showing. on the red tank i'm going to eventually body fill and paint it to go with the cafe seat. i'll probably switch it up a year after i finish the brat style. who knows.

today: i wanted to weld the hoop in, but i suck at welding. so i practiced my welds with the license plate bracket. i still have to round out the edges and adjust the holes slightly. but that's how its going to be. it would've been vertical, if the police out here weren't sticklers for horizontal plates.
