Re: 79 CB750K RCB Clone-ish
Soooo, Waiting on:
Cam cap bolts
Cam chain tensioner
Steering stem bearings
RCC custom tank
What it looks like now:
Every nut and bolt and spring that goes on is getting brushed by my brass wire wheel and applied with lock tight. My brackets and sub frame are all going on right now so its easier to keep track of all my parts.
Yes, I know my oil filter is on sideways, it helps with clearance right now.
What could have been a very very very very very very very very bad day...
You see it almost broke clean off, this is the cam cap bolt I was telling you about
Thing about powder coat. It rocks! My frame looks brand new and its a blast to work on and see, a real motivator! The catch is clearance... On alot of parts for example my kick stand... The applied powder on the kick stand and frame made for a VERY TIGHT fit. I used a rubber mallet, some axle grease and a punch in the bolt hole to get everything lined up. But its worth it! I will have a brand new bike when I'm done!
Also, next time I might see if I can have the frame acid dipped... Right now I have all this orange rust powder and sand falling out of the little crevasses and joints of the frame... Its gonna be hell keeping it clean.
I'm a strong advocate of ride when the roads are clear and to hell with rain but I think this will be my show/ good weather/ pavement only baby for a little while.
I'm clearly not done yet but thanks for the help everyone. Kiley, Cuz' of you I'm a better man/ biker for pulling my engine apart.
