Talking

aaaaand a weeeee bit more buffing....(yes I see that down there - no worries) Will be working on it here during this years TT. :-( I may or may not have this tank back in my possession this weekend), however, in lieu of that, I have to detail the frame, clean off all of everything I can get to. I bought a Clymers manual from another inmate this week - prolly wont rx in time prior to my careful excavation. Special care to cleaning of electrical connectors and wiring harness bits. Carbs to be carefully removed and prepped for rebuild, Frame cleanup may be not so deep as a perfect perfectionist would go, but I don't want to stand the chance of messing anything up that has been happily in place for 27 years. Cant wait to hear the stebel air horns honk, the lights light up, the blinkers blink, the instrument panel light up, and the starter wing over!!! (That may very well happen this weekend!)

BTW, just to clarify, and believe it or not -- the little blueish bits down there in between the painted lower pinstripes are more reflections from the black paint!

Talking Christmas in November

Thanks, T!

Things are looking up here at the Pedro Casa del rojas. Time to get serious about the R80. Wonder if I could just jet to p-cola and get the BING 32 rebuild parts I need there...

Tank - RTG.


Used Clymers Manual. Required.


New battery. Of course.


And just for good measure, a dollop of cool.

I was a sophomore in high school 50 years ago on Nov 22, 1963.

That's the day Kennedy was shot. We got out early.
