Sand, prep, paint only worked great for me but I am sure there will be other opinions.
Handlebar master cylinder plus extra front disc from a later airhead.
Keep points and add an ignition booster.
Don't know about rebuild kits in Australia. Lots of sources on this side of the world.
Take a look at the rearsets made by inmate owner of Boxer Metal - nice.
Kaput and Awaffa thanks for the support I appreciate it. I have my daily in the VTR so I am really looking to have fun with this bike - I am going to do the bike proud dont worry :)
I am going to go hard out with the rebuild eh, all new stainless bolts/washers/nuts, new bearings, everything that was painted gets repainted...and if money permits - engine rebuild (but its strong now so no hurry on that)
Thanks for the advice on the master cylinder and the fibreglass prep - I will hop on fleabay and get that master cylinder sorted
I got the engine and frame separated (as earlier stated)
A couple more updates coming up, when i get my parts from the UK i will post a cheeky pic
