    Living Room Build - Notes on taps/dies

    Re: First bike, First project! Sounds like a hell of a job? the cover looks a little ruff, are you going to paint the engine covers or polishing them? did you use sandpaper on the engine, cyl, and head as well? I gotta say, you got the force with you if you "handblasted" all the components...

    Gt380 Cafe build.

    Teazer: yes I have thought about them seals, but I was really hoping not to break the crank apart.
