I have never been a fan of the Gold color scheme on the 1986 / 1987 bikes, so one thing I will be doing in this build is radically changing the color scheme.
At this time, the color scheme I am aiming for is something like this:
I'm not certain whether I will be re-painting my original stock tank in this color scheme, or maybe buying a Clarke plastic tank in "Reflex Blue" and putting on some nice 3M Orange sticker material to get the same look. I realize the benefits of the plastic tank, but I am (always) on a low budget and $200 could certainly be put to other good uses in this build.
Also, I have already purchased and installed a Ricky Stator, and I am very hopeful that this will solve my no-spark situation.
More to come...
