Coming up with the special four-fingered tool to remove the filter nut from the crank will be the hard part. There should be a locking washer staked in place under the nut that will have to be flattened before the nut will come off.
Well,the 4 fingered tool thingy is pretty easy. I took a 12 point socket of a suitable diameter,and simply ground away material away until the four points appeared. A 12 point works great simply because it is divisible by three,and that yields the 4 points that you are after...... MacGuyver lives!. The best way to describe what the special tool looks like is a castle nut with 4 points instead of six.

Make sure that you use a thin cutting wheel on a 4 inch mini grinder. It can be a little risky, grinding into the end of a socket,so be careful

Mad... hell no, you just keep finding treasures from my youth
This may be the last of it for a few weeks as work beckons.

Took the frame in for powder coat because my oven isn't big enough, meanwhile did some cleaning and coating at home.

cleaned up and ready to shoot


powder applied, ready for the oven


1st batch


2nd batch


Is the side stand supposed to have this curve in it? I kinda doubt it and should straighten before coating.

Another couple of batches today, will be nice to get the cleaning behind me.



Got the new axle back for the centerstand/ rear brake lever, Lou did a nice job and made it out of stainless steel for me, not exactly stock but I don't mind improvements and I doubt many people will know.



Now I am stuck on the color for these, they came with the bottoms being black and the tops oxidized aluminum. Anyone know what color they should be?

Hard to say, the 350s came with bare aluminum top triples and bare aluminum top and bottom bar clamps. From the picture I posted earlier, it looks like the 71 CL450 might have had black on the top triple, and top and bottom bar clamps?

No definitive answers here, I tend to do whatever I think looks best...

Looking good so far!

Sorry it took so long, the building owners have been working on the entrance and I haven't been able to get into my shop for some time, but I was able to measure the headlight bucket last night. The OD is right at 7 1/8" on my 450.

By the by, Nice powder coating! I really should have looked into that before I went after it with the rattle cans...

Thats about the end of the teardown with the exception of a few sub assemblies, now it's time to get to the real work!
Yeah, that's pretty standard. One bike I drained had water on one side, and what looked like unicorn blood from Harry Potter on the other--some sort of silvery oil, probably oil, water, and some metal mixed in.

Keep up the good work and keep posting pics, looks nice!

Just for fun I changed out to a chrome powder, as you see it's more like polished aluminum but may be just the ticket for a guy who hates to polish.

I threw the uncoated sidestand spring in the pic so you can see the difference.



First finished parts



This is in the stripper pail as there are some flecks of schmotz that just won't do but if I can lay down a clean coat it just may do.

Thanks bud

Another sub assembly out of the way



and getting close to obsessive compulsive



You have seen this brake plate before but it took 3 reshoots until I was satisfied, a whole lot of outgassing!

Just incase you haven't seen enough powder coating

Watch this piece, we will see if it drives me outta my ever lovin



Front fork springs, brake lever and front axle.... done



Heres that cover again, still more to come



Most of the stuff above and the rear brake plate took 3 reshoots.... frustrating



and this is the defects I kept getting, it's like the aluminum is full of impurities despite my cleaning efforts.

By buying a powder-coating gun, powder, and pissing off the missus by using the kitchen stove.

In my case, I bought a used stove off CraigsList for $75.

It's a pretty simple set up and when I get time I will post some pics of my setup but basically I have a large(ish) metal cabinet as the spray booth where the hook the parts hand on is grounded to some ground rods.

The work piece hangs off the hook and i shoot with powder, when done I pop it into an old kitchen oveb I keep in the garagre for curing.
