Thank you for all the replies. I apologize for not posting any updates.
Unfortunately, I dont have much progress to post. All the engine machine work and new parts have been addressed. I just have to assemble it now.
Does anybody have some suggestions for the rear shock. The rear shock is in very poor condition and would cost quite a lot to refurbish. The shock piston is pitted, the rubber line is dry rotted and the spring has rust.
Is there any rear shocks from another bike that would possibly fit.
