24"x24"x1" air filter to add in front of our big box fan that I've place to the left of the drill press. Hopefully this will make a big decrease in the dust kicked off of parts when using the press for polishing, wire or abrasive wheel cleaning of parts. Last week I did a workbench cleanup (I'm pretty slothful, but couldn't do anything else until the grill can be moved out of the garage. And, that awaits the port-o-potty guy picking his little house up so I can get the grill into the lean-to.) Vacuumed the pegboard behind and re-discovered it is white, not dark grey!
The really good news is that the remaining materials for the decks is due in early this week!
EDIT: bummer news is that now the decking is not coming for two or three weeks. Shazbot!
I picked this up today. It's a 1972 Yamaha XS2 (XS650). I've been trying to find an XS1 or XS2 for years, but the prices have always kept them out of my reach. This one came out of a shop after the owner unfortunately passed away during a clutch job. All the parts that were removed for said job didn't make it with the bike, so I'll have a bit of gathering to do. Its dirty, but under a layer of fifth, the chrome and paint is coming up very nice. I think with a little elbow grease and searching out the missing parts, it'll make a respectable rider quality survivor.
