After a week of shaking and gasoline sloshing. I was able to locate the lock nut with a magnet against the outside of the case. Move it close to drain hole. Reach in with a piece of fence wire and pull it out. Whew. Hope that never happens again.

Bravo John for sticking with it. Don't worry, somehow I doubt it will happen again, ha ha.

LOL!

Well good; I'll be starting the winter work pretty soon here. Smile

The weather is delaying the start of work on this thing - all next week looks like it's going to be sunny and mid-to-high fifties, just like today Smile. Put about 25 miles on it today, anticipating lots more this week.

I'm getting all sorts of vibration noise from the speedometer - gripping it with a gloved hand quiets things down a lot. Is this a common problem?

Glad you're getting out for some pre-winter riding. Is the noise the speedometer bouncing around on its mount? That could happen if the rubber grommets on the mounting bolts have disintegrated. Or is it a dry bearing whining sound? That could be a dry cable or speedo bushing. Pull the inner cable, clean and grease it, and turn the speedo upside down and add light oil to the bushing where the cable attaches. Spin it with a drill with a squared off nail in the chuck. But turn it upright right afterwards so oil does not seep too far in and stain the speedo face.

The noise in the speedometer is apparently just something rattling around - did a test run today with the cable disconnected at the wheel and the noise was the same. We'll get in there this winter and figure it out.

Went to the junk yard today and got a few goodies - the correct tail light (but I still need the lens for it), handle bars much closer to stock, the correct gas cap, and (I think) correct reflectors for the sides of the fork legs.

The guy at the junk yard is certain that he has the tail light lens, and thinks he might have the side covers; he's going to look and let me know.

Attached picture shows the gas cap & the reflectors Smile

Another trip to the junk yard! I got the parts required to put the front brake lever back where it belongs (incorporated with the switch & throttle control). Old parts are in my hand in the picture. It was just bugging me...

I've also got the correct tail light put together - hope to install it yet today.

Alright, the new tail light is on. NOS lens on a junkyard fixture - I like it Smile.

I'm mostly shooting for a stock restoration, but one thing I really like are bar-end mirrors instead of those things on the stalk. I even "spoiled" my '57 Triumph with one...

I've ordered a set of aftermarket side covers from Thailand; just can't find the real things. $25 shipped - couldn't resist. I expect to have to modify the right side cover to clear the exhaust.

Looking good! Glad you got rid of that hideous cat-eye taillight. I got the Thailand side covers and they worked fine after painting and a small amount of fiddling with the mounting pegs.

I was tempted to try bar end mirrors on my CB125S, but thought they might make the front view look too wide, plus they vibrate more than the mirrors on stalks and on a little slow bike I decided it's best to have a clear view of faster vehicles coming up behind. I like bar-ends on my GB500 though.

Keep up the good work!

-Bill

+2 on the Thailand side cover. It fits perfectly, the price is good and at two years or so on mine, it appears to be durable. The wait on the shipping from over there is excessive though.

Side covers arrived - they fit perfectly! (Well, the left anyway - need to modify the right). The badges aren't right, but I'll probably do without them anyway. Or maybe keep the "100" somehow or another...

Looks nice! I t's a good idea to use a bit of silicone grease on the mounting tabs & grommets and always pull straight off when removing, so as not to stress the plastic.
