    Face book is

    Or he said you can find them on Ebay.

    Hopefully that helps, if it doesn't let me know.

    Aye, but our said barn-owner will be flipping cartwheels when he sees his rusting hulk of an excuse of a bike looking like a million dollars. Even if someone 'laminated' the spokes!

    Got most everything pretty much done, just waiting on plastic and my pipe and a seat cover and i also am machining a cover for the alternator assy.
    Today, i got all the brakes and cables done. The brakes were a pain in the ass.



    Here are some new photos nothing much has changed.

    Old seat with a new cover. I hate putting covers on. No matter what i do, i can't get them to look like the orginal. I had a buddy help me with it and i think it looks pretty good.

    Got the pipe sandblasted and painted and installed.

    OH MAN!!! you've done a great job with this! It's beautiful!!!!!! I love the early '80's CR's. This is fantastic and almost too sexy to ride but will look even better with some mud here and there! Have fun!!!
