Well have made some progress. Obviously it has been undocumented but know I haven’t let it become a garage dust pile. Got the tank on. Made a coil bracket where the horn would usually go. Bought a trailer fender and changed the radius to fit. Made a pan that will go under the seat with all electrics. Original foot pegs were installed too. Still trying to figure out what to do for rear brake. Think I’m gonna repurpose the stock brake bracket and hang it from the bottom. Also decided to go with the license plate and light on the side. Also I’m thinking I’m gonna leave the metal raw and clear powder coat it. It’s a lot easier than paint and I kind of like the raw look. Would be interested in opinions.

And if the top picture is confusing it’s the underside of the electrical pan. Two toggle switches and a push start switch. One switch for starting and one for electrical.

Well bike is wired and al electrical works well. Still tinkering with brake as I think I’m gonna fab up my own set up for the rear. The sad news is I tested the compression and the awful. 35 front and 60 rear. Gonna look into getting the top end redone. The pistons looked good and I have new rings. I just think there is too much slip in the valves. How much is going rate to have two heads done?

It's really starting to take shape. I like the look.

Is this the same garage that is shown in post #2? If so, it looks like you have done more to the garage than the bike It did look a bit naked back then

Yikes been too long. Not tooo much has happened because i went through the process of purchasing a house that needs a lot of work. Gonna be moving the bike to the new garage soon so i can work on it in between house stuff. I did end up sending off the top end for a professional bore job. i had lowwwwww pressure and it needed bored so we should be good on that now. Once its moved in ill get moving on it sooner. some other good news though.... i just received my Sugar Bear roller. She sure is pretty.

Been too long once again…. Maybe I’ll stop moving. Anyway fabbed up some exhaust. Welding skills are rusty but it’s getting covered anyway.

Really looking like a bike again, I like your direction. Too bad the previous owner was a “Darwin Award” winner. But you’ve been quite thorough so good on you'
