And here we sit... I went out of town for a few days and then got tied up w/ the project of getting the trailer ready for this winter. I've cleaned up the shop, better organized the parts, and have done more reading, searching for parts, watching YouTube, and making decisions about the build; I've got a plan for wheels that I'm very happy about, the lighting is going to look more or less original but will be modern in function, big brake conversion on the front will happen, and I'm going to go w/ a complete stainless fasteners set when I start reassembly. Still looking for a solo saddle/police seat if anybody happens to come across one. I'm not leaving town until the end of October so I may still pull the cylinders and do a top end seal/gasket job on it. (Since we didn't go south the last two winters we've had so much to do to get ready to be gone for months; house work, trailer work, personal business to attend to, and too many medical appointments. The list goes on...) Bottom line is that I haven't died, quit, lost interest, or set a torch to it. Oh yeah... and all of the pretty, and now shiny stuff; tank, fenders, side covers, fairing, and Wixom bags are carefully stashed away safely in the attic. I think that's the place where they are least likely to get rusty, dusty, or have something fall on them. When Mrs Ridesolo asked what they were doing up there I had to let her know what it would cost to attempt to replace such nice, original pieces.
