I turned the barrels because the rest of the motorcycle was still intact. I didn't see any point in removing the motor from the frame and stripping it to the bare block casting.

If you consider the work involved in stripping the motorcycle and engine block and the cost of five or six hours machining in a modern machine shop (unless you can do the machining yourself), the convenience of future barrel options begins to blur.

But there's always more than one way to skin a cat.
