Links to copyrighted manuals is a big no-no here. You should unlink or nuke the post. I'd like to follow along and won't be able to if you get yourself banned.

True, true!

However, that is a sweet bike. Good luck in your build. I will be watching intently.

Cool. If you have a compressor to use, you can make your own bead/sand/soda blaster. Should clean up the rust nice and quick.

A friend of mine has, so we will be sand/glass blasting all the small thingies

At first, I thought to work on the front and continue my way back, but the nuts and bolts didn't comply with that thought....

I left it soaking on the magical fluid and started from the back....

A faster and easier way is to soak the whole bike with kerosene, as they told me, but I couldn't do it in the small space that I am using...


Removed the seat and the rear plastic cover.

The rear cover was bolted in to four points, the two of them broken. The former owner used tie-wraps to keep it in place....
