Well the 385cc motor is a very popular combo and relatively affordable. Should make plenty of torque for the street :D

New correctly sized sprocket, new nuts and bolts. New kickstand spring.

Spring.

Because a $4 spring beats cleaning an old one with 30 years of oil!

I discovered in my box-O-RZ parts that I have all the parts to rebuild the swing. Off it comes, and to the power coaters.

Below are pitted linkage arms. They are good enough as new ones are $60 each.

<<EDIT>>

Make that $96.00 each!!!

After several days of soaking in WD40 I managed to get the rear wheel bearing out. Nasty...

That said, the new swingarm bushing drove out the new swingarm bearings...back to square one...Canadians...

Honestly...that is media from the powder coaters. They forgot to remove the old bearsing before blasting the wheel.

New OEM bearings are ready to be installed.

Oh, Woodcraft clip-ons arrived today. Sunday I hope to make some progress. I really want this thing to be a roller again. Currently on stands...It may spend the winter outside. After all, it is Canadian...:wilynily:

We only have so much grease up here, and we need it to spread on ourselves to keep from freezing to death. I have slightly thicker skin so I can save enough to lube my bearings.:p

You need to get some duplicolor caliper paint for the rear brake to match that Purdy red rim.

Coming together nicely.

Thanks. However the caliper pistons are so rusted I think I'll see if I can find a nice replacement. As by the time I buy pistons, seals, and have it blasted I'm sure I can find a nice used one.

Damn that's beautiful! I Love that bike! I haven't seen wheels that pretty since I picked my 86' up from the dealer way back then.

Does the bike not have a chain slider? Might be an idea. The swing arm vs chain looks awful close.

It does, two actually. One on the top of swing, and another on the linkage.

It's really handy. I wish I had another one of them.

I bought a set of car dollies today to place under the front wheel.
