Thanks Bill, It still rides like a 25 year old bike but that's kind of what I wanted.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

Mike, Kudos for a job well done. Your bike is stunning.. and it's great to read that it's not a garage queen.

Reading your follow-ups makes me want to spend a little cash on my /7... Ka-ching!

Mike - How much did the auto upholsterer charge you to do the install? I finally picked up a decent seat that doesn't have a rusted to crap pan and am looking at doing the same as you just did.

Dave, he charged me about $50 for the assembly. I think it was money well spent because it would have most likely looked like crap if I did it myself. Then I would have had to pay someone to do it properly and the cover may have been un-useable after my attempt.
You can get the reproduction cover from Sargents and if your foam is ok reuse it, or ask your local guy if he can build you a foam base instead of buying a replacement foam.

Hope you get your job situation worked out so you can continue on the bike.

Mike

mag cleaner

I,ve had 2 R80's in NJ before moving to Knoxville, and I tried cleaning the casing with mag cleaner,which is acid etching, the I would neutralize it, but the problem thereafter was sealing it, because the aluminum kept wanted to oxidize. Oh, hi steve h, and fred S.!

I think those R 80 wheels are painted. Thus the oxidizing after etching.

Still got the Strom?

Up from the depths huh, Thanks Jimmy !

I cleaned all the rust and old liner out of the fuel tank a couple of months ago, and replaced all the fuel lines adding the crossover back in. The bike sat in the garage until the next ride, I turned the taps on and was greeted with fuel leaking from most connections.
I can only guess the fuel line is not compatible with the ethanol fuels we have today. I have added clamps to most connections for now but would eventually like to not have them on the bike. Anyone have luck with the braided/covered fuel line available without using clamps ?



I plan to ride it down to our local shop this weekend for a vintage show.

Hey Mike
I have braided fuel lines from the tank down to the crossovers. The rest are automotive non woven lines (I brought the bike to the shop and had the safety done. The mechanic put those automotive lines on throughout.. I hated the look and a friend had some spare woven lines.) I havent been arsed to change the lower and throught the airbox lines as it looks decent enough as is.
They dont leak and I use no clamps..

Ps Great job btw! I like the valve cover change you did. Ill be looking at that for my 100S.
