I'm not real sure where this will go, the bike is to nice to cut up. I gonna polish the guts Outta everything and lace tm400 akront hoops to my hubs. I may try to find a period pipe for it.

I've already fixed the rear taillight bracket and heat shield and painted them black, these parts will be replaced with chrome parts if and when I find them with reasonable prices.
I also started on my wheels

subscribed. my brother has one i'm helping him clean up as well. yours looks in really nice condition.
i guess i may as well ask here, does yours have a front brake light switch? there's some screws and a piece of black plastic under the lever on ours, but i can't quite see how wires would connect to it.

Old style Suzuki switch, PITA to assemble and set
Just go and get a new one from 2004 Intruder or similar, they made them one piece so easier to fit. I probably have one or two of the originals somewhere

I like that green, that will look pretty good, You are going to have way to many running bikes if you keep this up.

Holy shiney batman. Now what are you going to use to keep it shiney, if I did that it would look like poo right after the first ride in my climate

The better the polishing the longer it lasts. Dead smooth surface doesn't oxidise so quick
