The weather has been cold and wet, but today it was beautiful.

I got my piston installed and mounted the cylinder and head. Then got the magneto cleaned up and pretty much got everything together.

Here's how the motor is looking:









I need to clean up the carburetor and get it installed, and that should just about do it for the motor parts.





I need a couple of clear days to sand blast and powder coat the frame, because I have to do it outside. So I'm going to hold off on the carb for a the next couple of days and see if I can get the frame done.

I sand blasted it this afternoon and will clean it up and prep it for the powder coating in the morning. Hopefully I'll have it done tomorrow.
