Its getting close. Once the rear fender is mounted all that is left is

-throttle cable
-clutch cable
-front brake cable
-oil lines
-fuel lines
-make a wireing harness
-finish the exhaust.
-new valve cover and bolts for the headlight (this thur)

Then fire it up.

Then strip it all down, sandblast it, powdercoat it, and re-assemble

Oh and I still need to send my Akront wheels out to get drilled and build the wheels with new stainless spokes. But that might wait for another day. I think I want a running bike before I worry about the wheels.

And I think the forks will need a little more TLC before Im done. They work and go up and down. But arnt quite right. For one they leak. Wrong seal on the bottom drain bolt. Gotta get some new ones ordered. I lowered the forks about 2-1/2" and that put a lot of preload on the springs. THey are a tad stiff. Not to mention that the springs are pitted and rusty. Might have to get some new springs as I imagine mine are sacked out.
