Well, my bike is almost done.
Need to mount the license plate and light, indicators and finish the seat.
Oh, and get it running.
Will buy a compression tester tomorrow. All electrical seems to work fine.
Here is the state as it is now.As you see, I painted the frame as well.
POR-15 seems to work just fine. Looks a lot better when it´s shiny and no surface rust is visible.
Next winter I will probably remove the engine and do it all properly and powder coat it.
The side covers will have to do until I have time to fabricate new ones. They look like sh*t, but they do the job. New head light and mount will also be there when I get the time/money for it.
If I don´t buy a XS650 or an old Iron Sportster. They seem to go for the right kind of money now. Recession rules (NOT).
If it would run now, without any major overhaul be a mechanic, it will all be done for less than $500. Not to bad huh?
