Parts arrived. I've got the headstock bearings in and the fork seals replaced. Hope to put everything back together this afternoon / tomorrow. Doesn't look there is going to be a break in the rain til ...

I think I've fixed the rattle in the speedometer with a very light spring and the perfect size nylon washer. Assembled it spins freely and does not rattle. Of course I won't know for sure until I ride ...

Waiting for parts to arrive, I've done some little stuff. Polished the top of the triple tree, and sprayed "chrome" paint on the rusty insides of the headlight brackets. I've also repaired t ...

Yeow, those fork tubes are likely to eat your new seals in short order. You might want to find a shop that does hydraulic cylinder repair and get an estimate for replating with hard chrome.

The lower bearing is trashed, upper looks OK. New parts on the way.

Fork legs are in pretty nasty shape in spots (see picture). I'm just going to polish them and put it back together though - we'r ...

Head stock bearings feel a little "notchy". Glad I'm taking the thing apart to see what's up.

I've got a couple little hairline cracks in the plastic headlight bucket. I just now rubbed a little styrene glue on a spot inside to see if it effected the plastic at all, and it didn't. The stuff al ...

I think I blew out all the passages pretty well (knock on wood). We'll keep a close eye on the screen and the oil in the spring.

Next up is the front fork. Oh, and I know what's causing the rattle ...

Yucky! I pulled out the oil screen again and it was almost plugged with crud. Remember this is the screen that was installed backwards (and so not doing anything) previously. So it picked up all this ...

Hey, my gasket set arrived! So this afternoon I've put the right side cover back on, along with the foot pegs, brake pedal, and exhaust.

The brake pull rod was bent up like a pretzel (a little hyp ...

Moving along... I couldn't find the exact paint Bill recommended, but "VHT Engine Enamel" #SP127 "Univ. Aluminum" appears to be a very close match as well. Supposed to be good to 5 ...
