Here's a link to the new pics. http://www.sohc4.us/gallery/v/members/personal/Wulfshrunting/20070610/

Some changes you may note: Euro/Superbike bars, reupholstered seat, new paint. I got the replacement decals from cbdecals.com.

Cool! I had a chance this weekend to pick up a used pair of those mirrors, but I passed.

Thanks! She's a work in progress, and so far, I've been fixing broken stuff just to get her on the road. She's running pretty good, too. I would really like to pull the engine, bead blast it, and polish some of the covers. The engine is where you can see the 28 years of light wear and tear. That's a job for next year, maybe. She has an exhaust leak in the left pipe, just under the foot rest, so I need to do something about that.

You could weld stainless steel on the leak. It can be polished and is hardly noticeable then. Three of four of my pots are repaired on the bottom this way.
