Since I only took one pic of the bike when it arrived here, I got some more 'before' pics from Jimbo.

I'm envious, need another project and this looks great, they are becoming harder and harder to find.

Not much to report lately. I've been working on cleaning and priming the small black parts. Frame, cradle and front mount are next on that list.

Cleaning off the bench, I discovered a small thin washer and knew immediately I had left out a rocker shaft thrust washer. I enlisted the help of my grandson to get it back where it belongs.

First, the covers have to come off to find the washerless rocker.

Then, a little judicious heat to the rocker shaft bores for that particular valve to ease pulling the shaft.

Image

Then, a little impromptu grinding, just to make some sparks'

Image

Then we had a flat to fix on the old car; ( i know, not motorcycle-related)
