Looking good man. What are you looking for as far as a final result?

thank you for asking that mike...

when he asked for advice, im like "hmm, well, depends what you want. do you want a pink bike with hello kitty in a bondage position? because i could give you advice."

i kept my thoughts to myself xD


best advice i can give is to fix and adjust everything to factory spec first before doing mods. makes life easier. oh, and have fun, and label everything. organization is the best.

as a final result i just want to paint the tank and seat silver with a couple of black stripes through the middle. for a seat i was thinkin about goin with a seat from roccitycafe.com. still need to know what to do for turn signals, tail light, and i bought carb rebuilds need a lil help on those but im sure they arent bad to do, plus i want to adjust the valves. i bought this bike running with a title. problem was it didnt have much power. i dont know if its because it didnt have mufflers, just sum shitty cut off pipes from an old cb i guess. but i changed that. so yep need help with valve adjustment, timing, seat, turn signals and tail light, and i think thats it

Heaven is so far away.
I just wanna say - for as "quite" as this thread is, you're doing some great work so far.

Have you done a compression test on the motor? That will tell you if its the valves or rings that are losing power.

Here are the turn signals and taillight I am going to use. You will need a new relay flasher thing for the turn signals b/c they are LED. My room mate has them installed on his bike and they work great, same for the taillight, it looks good and its nice and bright.

Your bike is all there................. but the bottom line of the tank looks to low in relation to the seat pan.
Is it possible to either raise the tank mounts or lower the seat?
once the line matches up I think it'll look sweet and the paint work will kick in.
