Alright put in some work yesterday, here goes
Wanted to rig up a battery to see if the electrical system had any life
idiot lights came right on. Yea buddy!
As you can see, the ignition has been.. bypassed.
Im looking to use the gas cap and ignition from
the donor VN750 bike, but its missing keys too..
The darn garage find bikes are killing me haha.
Planning to take the locks to a local locksmith
and have them keyed.
Pulling the bars, got the cables and harnesses disconnected
Old bars off
The parts pile is growing..
Got the upper triple tree off
aaaand the forks
While the front end is off, I decided to get on
one last pass of cleaning and lay down some paint.
Shes pretty well pulled apart right now, except for
the motor. Shes looking a little rough.
Ive already made a few passes with the dremel and
wire brush to remove rust and gunk. I made another
pass going over the whole bike with wire scrub brushes
and wd40, then finally wiped the whole thing down with
acetone and rags. Then I got a little creative with tape
and cardboard and started spraying.
Radiator back on, gloss black over primer w/ satin clear frame
High temp engine enamel over high temp primer for the engine.
