    What did you build this week?

    Nice, but the main question - does SHE like it?

    2001 Suzuki Bandit 1200

    Probably been sticky for a while. And, when he wore the previous one out, he installed what he could get cheap. POs - can't figure them.

    1975 BMW R90/6 - Rocinante

    At least it was stored long enough ago that it was real gasoline and not the alcohol blends these days. Protected from corrosion, you should be able to clean out most of the gook with a good soak in acetone.

    The Free Kawasaki Z650 Project

    Shame such a great build has to go on hold. If you want to keep it upright instead of dependent on a wall to lean against, consider adding wood blocks to a furniture dolly to just raise the bike under the engine carriage (similar to how you had it on the bike lift) and ratchet strap it to the...

    I believe that is Marlon's. Will have to remember to ask when I see him next (maybe this evening).

    The Free Kawasaki Z650 Project

    Most all motorcycle covers are ABS plastic that bonds strongly using ABS plumbing cement and general purpose plumbing cleaner. Plastic to make new tangs is usually given freely by repair shops doing wreck repairs. Cut out what you need and glue it on. If needed, fiberglass cloth can reinforce...

    The Creature from the Black Leather Lagoon ('78 KZ1000)

    There is a 3M spray adhesive that they use for attaching headliners. #80, I believe. Find someone that does boat upholstery. They should have tricks for attaching to 'glass. The guy that did mine used staples. They also make spike strips that you can screw to the 'glass.

    pidjones '72 T150V rescue

    Oil lines installed. Waiting for clamps. Other parts came in today, though. Slow progress. Discovered when I put the chain on it that there is no master link. Wired together to let me rotate the engine for timing.
