A few bits needed to fix what the PO shonked

Hey all,

Started the full tear down of my motor so I could get things chromed or polished, and paint the cases and barrels black, fit the new stator and come across some nasty's.

1) the case/cover with the oil view window in it has a hairline crack that obviously leaked as the PO had stuck it together with araldite (sp?) that I didn't see because it was hidden under the front bevel gear case grrrrrrrrrr - so if anyones got one for sale can you pm me.

2) looking for a rear (or is it front? I've forgotten) rocker box cover - the one without the holes threaded in to it for that 'orrible bit of chrome plastic - it basically saves me from having to get the holes welded up then having it chromed or polished.

3) brake master cylinder (round type) - I want to use a different set of bars and the square master cylinder hits them.

4) right hand rear indicator - mine was held together with tape and an indicator shave couldn't even save it

What annoys me more than the fact the thing was held together with sylastic (rubber gasket cement) was the fact that I didn't spot it and the PO didn't tell me it had these minor issues. Maybe I'm too honest for my own good, but I would have either replaced the cracked bit or told any prospective buyer about it *shrug* my bad.

Cheers
Carl

Cyllinder head cover or so the book calls it, I thought I was going up market by calling it a rocker box - normally I call 'em a tappet cover seeing as most of the bikes I had, had tappets - yes I'm that old

Heheheheh...aka valve cover, and the front one is the one without the chrome plastic trim piece. If you're not in a hurry, I'll trade ya tit fer tat; my spare front for your rear with the trim piece, each pay our own postage. Postage is prolly between 23 and 30 USD, and it'll be at least the 15th before I can ship; medical crap and mortgage payment got nearly all my 1st of the month check.
