There you go. One airhead electrical system, minus the whirly bits.

Kinda looks like those squid things in The Matrix, huh?

That makes two of us. Wheels need to get painted, too.

I pressure washed the rear wheel today and it looks a lot better, but I still think it needs some paint.

Why aren't the headlight ears in the 'to paint' heap?

Personally I'd toss the bag mounts in that heap also, but send them (and the battery tray and signal stalks) for powdercoating instead of painting. Maybe also the rear rack. Forget that triple clamp; get a Toaster Tan one...

I'd say you've been spending your off hours well there, Dave.

Looks like you're getting right through the rough bits - not one scream about the headlight bucket - very nice solution!

Did your paint source fall through?

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.

See how it works?

You know that you won't be happy with it unless you replace the damaged stuff.

Oh and powder coat the frame. You won't be sorry.

And I find a painter.

I'd just live with the cam cover as it is, but I'd figger out a way to redo the paint on the timing cover.

Having access to a welder will make getting the races out a snap. Have someone weld a bead on each race and they should just fall out once the welds have cooled and the races shrink. Otherwise, getting the lower one out is a first-class bitch.

I've got some brand new headlight ears, that aren't all bashed in, so they're just getting replaced. The bag mounts are chrome, so I'm going to leave them.

I'm going to get rid of the rear rack and go with just the seat rail, I think.

I got some pictures from Ray this morning. They shipped my paintwork yesterday.
