And you also have Tom Cutter as a local resource. He can put that bike back together blindfolded.

Yeah, Jim Robinson, haven't met Kimme. Tom has ridden with us a couple of times over the years.
I actually live just down the road in Knoxville and meet with those guys a couple times a year to ride.

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.

Dead-blow hammer worked for me, just got one side off for now. It was enough to remove it from the bike.
Still need to get the motor out and front end off, maybe this weekend.

I've seen old school boatbuilders bend pipe rails that way. Pack the hard pipe with dead dry sand then weld the ends up but leave a hole, say 3/16" to let out the steam and there is always steam.

Gave mine some serious love last winter (rear main, wiring with relays, yada yada) not finished yet, enjoying too much... am LUVING this bike!!



To be done yet... when I get a rountuit.... ...powdercoat crash bars, rack and pannier mounts, modification of kickstand, finish up the dash, etc etc.

Side stands

I'm getting a little annoyed with my automatically retracting side stand, it's fine on flat ground when hopping off while holding the bike but I guess I'd like to be able to kick the thing down before getting off just the way i could on most of my previous bikes.

Any suggestions? I've looked at the MotoBins site but while they list a side stand it says not suitable for an ST !

Wicked Hey all!

Greeting fellow ST owners,I'm Twinox and I'm back in the fold after an absence of thirteen years. I sold my 83 ST with R100 motor and GS clothes prior to my son's birth. Now I've just bought FadingFast's 1983 ST. Of course I've got all sorts of plans for it..
