swan said:Awesome! Nice new parts, beautiful photos and techniques.
Who did your plating? Cost?
swan said:Ed, looking good.
I see the advantages to a tubeless set up, but what if you need to tighten or loosen a spoke in the future? Let's hope you trued the rims perfectly.

Just a suggestion; take the front end off, put the engine on its side and slide the frame down and bolt it in place. My wife Deb helped me with mine. It went smoothly (no scratches and it was easier on my back). Good luck!
swan said:Ed, You cannot simply swap a lower motor case and hope it will match the upper. Each halve is mated and lined bored at the factory, so it is all or nothing. The other alternative is to do what I did on my CB750 K4 and have my welder Pat TIG weld a repair. Do it right the first time. There a two spare CB750 K motors at Winona Riders if need be.
swan said:In the neighborhood of $25 for gas, welding rod and a twelve pack of Grain Belt for Pat's labor. I am serious.
PS just rode the Gold Star for the FIRST TIME!
