stick a fork in me!

I finished stripping down the frame. I ran into a bit of an engineering snafu when I tried to remove the rear shock. I put one of my sub frame braces in the way of the shock bolt. I had to notch the tubing to remove it....doh! I think I figured out how to fix it. I don't have any pictures of that yet. I did glass up my seat pan so I can get it off to the "seat guy". I also pulled my forks apart and installed new seals and dust seals. The springs and guide bushings were within specs according to the manual. I cleaned up the fork lowers. I decided not to polish them since this is going to be a "dirty" bike. I put in some fresh bel-ray fork oil and 8psi on top of that, then some seal savers and the forks are ready for action. I also picked up my paint today.
