Bright light makes it so much easier. You can see the details of what you're doing. And with the lights spread around there isn't a dark corner. The bonus to LED lights is they don't use much power for the output.
Well, suspension is fully rebuilt, new seals, fluid, bushings, and bearings. Next up is intake and exhaust. It does look strange on a bench with no wheels or fenders.
And while I waited on parts I added a filter to the parts washer.
Well, plastics got here, but I can only install the front fender. Subframe is too bent to even remotely line up the side panels or rear fender. Luckily there was a NOS subframe on ebay so it's ordered.
Truing stand is almost done. It's using 6002 bearings, and will have a 15mm hard chrome linear bearing shaft. Shaft should be here tomorrow, cones are aluminum to test it and I can always make steel ones later.
Thanks. I pulled it off the bench so I could get a look at it with wheels and plastics on. I think It'll look pretty good once finished.
Things still left:
Oil cooler, got a devol radiator guard/brace it'll get mounted to.
Rear brake, caliper needs a rebuild and I'll do the master too.
Front brake, waiting on a bracket from applied racing to use a 2 piston caliper.
Muffler, it's getting a supertrapp
Carb, waiting on the 24mm dellorto pumper
Seat cover, probably getting a black one.
New bars/ upper triple? Might make a triple, Don't want to spend $250 for one. If I make one it'll probably get protaper bars.
