Removed exhaust, straight to the wire wheel, sandpaper, cleaned and painted.
Began the clean up of the bike with some 0000 steel wool. Some black paint touch up and a fresh full tank of high grade gas. The black drag bars arrived today. Now waiting on NGK spark plug caps and turquoise grips. <-----Really wish these were here.
Going to stitch the sides of the seat up today.

Start to finish.

Beginning of the day and end of the day. And by end of the day, I mean pushing the dead bike back to the shop, PISSED. Hopefully just a gas issue.

Today we stripped all the blinkers, reflectors, and tank paint.
Installed new head light, fuel lines and filters. Installed new seat.
HOWEVER, the bike died on me and had to be pushed back to the shop. Today I investigate why. Seal the tank, and start painting the exhaust. Possibly the engine.

I know it doesn't look too bad, but I can barely stand to look at it at this point.
