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.

Life is short, live and enjoy it !!!
