The friend did all cosmetic, never touched the motor (thankfully.) He trashed the clip on bars, the chrome fenders, rattle canned all over the bloody place and ditched the tank logos.

In other news: The motor is out, pulled the magneto and stator. I pulled the rear wheel to check things as well. It looks like the cog and spur are in great condition with little to no wear, the rubber damper in the rear hub is alright...I could replace it later. The brakes don't even need to be replaced yet
I'm heading the ol' home town (augusta) today to check a /5 for a friend. While I'm there I'll grab some of my dads tools to tear the motor apart. I'm so excited to get it down to the cases, blast em and clean it all up!!
