Great job on the painting. I say shoot the rest in flat black and add tons of decals.

+1 here Rob! I think that would look the best.

Hey did you ever get it running well? If so what did you have to do to it? What are you planning to do with it?

Thanks man! Yeah, I got it to run for a few secs, several weeks ago, just by spraying into the carbs a bit with starting fluid. Then the throttle cables got completely stuck/binded. I didn't try again since I wanna change out the fluids.

It looks like it just needs a good carb cleaning, new throttle cables, and fork seals. That's it. I got a neighbor who's got a buddy/team-mate (he races vintage bikes) with a shop on the north side. He agreed to get my bike running, and in return he can borrow my trailer one week when he needs to go to Oklahoma for some race they want to do.

Boy that sounds like a really good deal there Rob. That is a win win situation! Keep up the good work.

Man stop it! I'm way to tempted as it is. It is one sweet bike to ride I'll tell you that.
