The following weeks brought us the cold North Dakota winter, and one warm night I brought the bike into my workplaces heated shop for wintertime tinkering to get her all fettled up for the spring.









Well what to attack first? Well, it did have brakes, but I figured rebuilding the brake system is always something good to do.


Before picture of master cylinder.



Lets open this thing and visit the Nastymonster


Ewwwww


Ok, now lets take the whole entire front brake system apart and strip it of the old paint....



Now lets stuff some silicone plugs in dem holes and throw them on my powdercoating stand, AKA a worklight stand.



Ok, the High Gloss Black powder has been applied, throw 'er in the oven...



Set the oven at 400F and set the ol timer for 15 minutes, lets bake dem cookies!

TADA.......!!!!








After they cooled off, I threw the master and calipers back together...

After getting that all done, it was time to buff the aluminum on the engine.

Generator/starter sprag cover before...

Good to see you found the owner and got a clear title. You must have been living right for a while as that usually does not happen.


I'll enjoy watching your progress on the bike.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

Cheers,
