    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    Scrubbed the wiring harness and installed that today. Installed all the electronics on the panel by the battery box and installed ignition switch. Used wire wheel on bench grinder to spiffy up a pile of hardware. Just about to the point in my process to shine up fork lowrs and engine covers.....let the dirtyness begin.

    I have not got a fairing. That was gonna be my next big ticket item after i get these customer bikes billed out. Thanks for the paint compliment. When time comes to source a fairing ill give you a PM. Fair enough???

    Looks like tomorrow ill be able to get back after this bike. Plan is to start degreasing and prepping engine for paint. Been a long minute but i finally decided no more customers bikes till i have this engine rebuilt and in the frame. Ordered a bunch of parts for the last bike which is an 81 Yamaha XT250. Parts wont be here till around the 18th so theres a window for me.

    Todays festivities included degreasing the entire engine and painting the lower half. Then i turned my attention to getting the Neways busy and doing a valve job. Lapped all the valves and decided 6 hours in this oppressive humidity was enough. Next will be reinstall the valves and get the cylinders and head painted. Once thats done i need to pull the pistons and clean them up. Its finally some overdue progress.
