More cleaning before polishing. I use an abrasive wheel 150 grit to clean first, and light 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper, then a firm buffing pad on an angle grinder with hard metal polish.

Been awhile since i posted, but I've done a lot over the past 6 months.
Including tail hoop, self made Carbon fiber seat, and sand blasted. As of right now, its all getting painted.

Almost done with fine tuning. Completely redid the harness. New cables for everything. Got my carbs back from CrazyPJ. had one of the brand new seals leak, (the main shaft oil seal for the clutch rod) so replaced that. Made the battery bracket for under the seat, and sorted all the wires out.

Nice work. I ran a cable on mine, which I've found to work pretty well but may have been a bit of extra work involved.

You may find your rear brake will perform better if the cams are parallel to each other:
Yeah, these sets are a bit limiting on giving you flexibility for positions. Its all in 90 degree increments.

cool stuff. Dig that color scheme

one word of advice on those old school speed rearsets (I had them before I went back to stock) get some rod ends from QS components and replace those crapy 90* ends. they will kill you at worst and make adjustments and pedal feel terrible at best.

Thanks for the tip. Absolutely will do.

Thank you.
I had "Summer" in mind for the colors. I think that's her name now.
