Well been a few days so though an update would be in order.. Waiting for parts so did some tank prep and pulled off the front end so I can get prepping the frame for paint. Good thing too as the bearings were almost dry

Well yes, it will be Black.... BUT with something special mixed in as I don't want to have a stereotypical bobber color... lets just say there will be some Green in the mixture

Carb Update

Well time for an update. Finally found some time to finish my carb project. Broke em down, cleaned, metal primed and sprayed with high temp engine enamel which is resistant to oil and fuel. Also installed Stage 1 jets and shimmed needles to add more mid range power. Have one more addition but waiting for shipment. Took me over 3 hours just to mask for painting.

Before:







After:
