Here's a '71 with the proper rear fender struts.

Thanks for your feedback.
Now I won't change anything in the body, but I will modify the engine. I want to change camshafts to andrews R5, install permanent magnet generator and dyna ignition. In the future I would like the motorcycle to be in factory condition.

PMG - Permanent magnet generator? I will build the generator myself. https://allegro.pl/oferta/nowy-alter...yny-7992137538
In my country, a generator from kubota tractor costs 55 USD and a voltage regulator costs 35 USD. The cheapest generator on ebay costs $ 215 and there is no charge indicator lamp. I like to do something myself.

Warning! I need a P4 camshaft with a tachometer drive in good condition. If anyone has for sale please contact me.

I recorded a short film.

Next week I'll install the single fire ignition. I'll change jet to 0,265/0,66, now it's too rich.

I installed a new dual fire ignition. Everything works well. I feel improvement only at low speed. I will still adjust it.

Great job! It's not easy building a bike from a pile of parts. Be proud and ride safe!
