Parts are coming in way to slow!!! Got the "new" radiator installed which was painless. Finished fabricating a mount for the Roll chart/ spot holder and took it to the powder coater. The 44T steel chain ring came in too, so it got slapped on, after cleaning up the threads to the bolts, plus a little lock tight on them. Also the carb float bowl gasket arrived, so that's in place too.

Extra clutch and throttle cables have arrived.

Thinking of mounting the eastern beaver fuse panel just behind the battery and in front of the tool tube. Of course it'll need a bracket, plus another box around it to protect it from the weather. I can't locate a potentially dry out of the way place for it, there just isn't a good spot for it.

Still no swing arm bearings!!!!

A note on the shock upper link bearing replacement from All Balls. The top bearing and bush are steel. The one in the bike looks to be stainless, beacause there is no corrosion on it. Also the outer race on the ball pivot looks to be split and rolled around the inner pivot. The is a very small hairline visible on the outer edge. Crappy!!! I'll be putting the old one back in w/ the new seals.
