Rain rain go away...

Weather is not cooperating, too cold, too wet, too windy... it's screwing up my time line for getting PROJECT-S back on her wheels, Grrrrrr!!!
Rain is delaying my spray painting. I still need to spray the rear of the main frame and the sub frame. Once these are painted I can reassemble the bike and at least get her back on her wheels (i.e. roller) TINK

Give me a "brake"

Rear brake caliper, with new pads, ready to go.
Didn't break down the rear caliper for rebuild, every indication (no leaking, even pad wear) is that it doesn't need to be rebuilt.



Good time to change rear brake pads as they were down to nothing.


Front brake master; clean, painted and ready for reassembly.

I love the progress, but why not yank the engine and wiring for a complete paint job? It's only a few more bolts.

I know my methodology seems to baffle people...

Quite frankly, the front of the frame didn't need painting as this bike started life as an R100RT so the frame forward of the battery was in perfect condition, with all of the original decals intact. The only area that needed to be touched up was under the front master cylinder where brake fluid had leaked on the frame. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=162

It's only the rear of the frame, from the battery back, that needed to be addressed due to many years of boiling over wet battery road tube spillage. Originally I was hopping to just do a quick spot paint job but as I got further into it I discovered there was a lot more battery acid damage than I had originally thought.

I plan to take the bike apart again (Phase-II) and really detail everything, but first I want to ride her a few hundred miles and see what mechanical issues need to be addressed. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=210

It's looking great, my '74 started as a little clean up and ended as a bare frame too. I like this picture, "BMW Engine with Handle"

LOL, not a chance, but I've turned the corner and have no place to go but up from here.

The brake systems are all rebuilt, the forks are ready to be assembled, and the rest of the bits and pieces have been cleaned, painted, and are ready to go back on.

I have a trip to Seattle the second weekend of January for my mothers 91 birthday, so I won't be here for VBOC.

It's a roller

Yeah, at long last it's unchained from the Harley Davidson Lift.
Looks good Tink.
