The restoration took about a year. He timed the bike, tuned the carbs, NGK B8ES plug and I believe he is using Klotz bean oil. Still needs a little more tuning. He zinc plated some of the bolts and parts, and used stainless steel in other spots. This is a 100% restore all the way down to the factory stickers.
I think he did a pretty good job

Congratulations to your dad on a job well done! It really does look great!
Why don't you post the restoration photos? I would love to see them and am sure others would too.
