Yeah but, much of what you're are doing isn't necessary, it's personalizing and making it new, what I'd term discretionary spending. I'm not being critical, there's certainly nothing wrong with your approach, I'm just clarifying it was still a super bargain.

But selling Amanda's Yamaha? Hmm.

And now that you have the pipes off and the cover off, you can really polish into those crevices you couldn't reach before, but that you could still sort of see.

But then it all has to come apart again to paint it.

I'm thinking I'll just leave it apart. Gonna trailer the bike up to a tech near Allentown next week. I'll get the seat by then, and can take the body parts to the paint shop. I just need get the tank and those fenders off now. doesn't look too hard.

I thought the timing chain had failed while underway and precipitated an accident, with the windshield and fairing diaplaced, oil running out, etc.


This is better.

Did you know roof racks are responsible for 0.8‰ of light duty vehicle fuel consumption in 2015, corresponding to 100 million gallons of gasoline per year?

Looking at that picture I can tell your highest priority, like mine, is MPG.
I see you've got a drug dealer's black plate, I have one on my '57.

That's actually the one with the train on it. Preserve our Heritage.
And I used an entire tank today going to Slatington then Eagle and back home.

My bad, I'd forgotten about the train plates, I don't see many around anymore. Of course that may be because it's getting harder, and less worthwhile, to chew through the restraints.
