    In the 3rd pick you see moly 55 grease. This stuff slightly swells rubber. There is a small o-ring between the AJP caliper halves I coated with it.Most likly not needed but will make sure nothing seeps.I used moly 55 a lot on paint ball gun electronic trigger air control systems to help seal.

    20200411_001655.jpg 20200411_005242.jpg 20200411_004926.jpg I found a motor on Amazon to replace stock cooling fan motor. Going to try this instead of spam fan I purchased. Only 15 bucks and has ball bearings instead of bushings like original. Painted some parts I missed like fan housing mount and cleaned up exaust. I threw the header in a yard fire to burn out coke.Boring stuff but want to do it right.

    Finished putting 2k clear on my parts and looks decent for a amateur painter.The decal places are closed here so I just painted the shroud graphics on which was a bitch. 20200423_123317.jpg 20200423_122621.jpg

    The 94 did not have the frame mount for the 91 shock res.A friend gave me a 2x3 sheet of 4mm aluminum so took a small piece off and came up with my own mount. 20200422_000106.jpg 20200422_000005.jpg

    I gotta admit for an old HOS, that bike is going to look pretty nice. Too pretty to ride...

    Sometimes I think I should of held back and just made it mechanically sound for that reason. Not going to try some of the stupid shit I try to pull off on my gasser.If we do get to ride some trials this summer will try it out on one of the more forgiving ones (NOT Door county).We were looking at some new sections to make in Door last weekend.Hopefully will be toned down a bit from last year.

    "Too nice to ride" was exactly what I was thinking also. This bike is SWEET!

    From the guy who's bike collection, umm, err, has a lot of patina. And I'm mean this in the most flattering way.:-)

    20200423_234353.jpg 20200423_230642.jpg 20200423_224354.jpg Last project of night so I can start finishing this bike.Shot the skid plate with the same high temp powder as header.Have found this powder to be pretty tough in other use.Skid was to big for my little 2 pizza oven so used tinfoil to seal in heat.I tried cleaning up skid but some of the narfs were pretty deep.Powder fills in stuff better than paint and is tougher so worked out well.Almost shot skid with chrome powder but decided against it for this project.

    Not going to try to explain this but found out the reason this bike has the name Stanley steamer. My friend thought it was a broken impeller (all good there ).This pick is a thermostat that can be taken apart.The pressure return valve was missing and no pressure was building up beside relieving it when it was cooling. 20200525_220417.jpg

    All you have to do is leave the tire blocked a few days. The DUnlop is usually the easiset one to mount.

    I put a tube in it over inflated for a couple days and it did help.
