Decided to do a build thread on my 74 850 rebuild like I did on my 72. Here's a link to that one.mitch-basket-case-t4616.html
Bought this one about a year and half ago and have been plugging away at since then.
This was the what was included in the initial purchase. Frame, bottom end, cylinders and pistons, gearbox and several boxes of parts including oil tank and some other bits. All matching numbers.
First item was to locate a cylinder head. Baxter's had one and I had them go ahead and do a rebuild on it before sending it to me.
I raided my parts bins and did a mock up. Fortunately, I had all this stuff from my parts scrounging over the years.
The black tank in the above picture is a fiberglass junker. I had a repop steel tank and painted it in Duplicolor metalspecks blue with Spraymax 2K clearcoat. Came out looking pretty good for a spray bomb job.
