    I gotta say it........You saw what the pavement did to the cylinder cover........Wear a helmet, or you head could get a similar rework. Enjoy.

    A ride around the driveway just after you put everything together is too tempting!

    Very nice work, this was quite an easy fix ! ! ! Enjoy your "new" ride ! How much did this whole thing cost you, including the bike purchase ? if you don't mind me asking ...

    That was a pretty easy fix, just a matter of replacing parts. The valve timing was a new one for me as never seen cam sprockets with no positive lock on the cams before. My friends the one with the account sheet :D so no clue about the rebuild cost
