Nice pick up Ben, unfortunately i don't think i have anything lying around that would interest you.  I will double check just to be sure.

I think you have a set of 810 Pistons lying around that I would be interested in Smiley

Thanks Treeve! They're not expensive. I will ride over to ask Galen at Bikeworx in Hudson, if he has a set.

Found some old sv650 bars lying around which worked out fine. Got my seat back from Eddie Barrett's, tank back from Sal at Morris Radiator in Wooster, following Redkoting. Will clean and refurbish the petcocks while the Red Kote cures for a couple of days. I am going to try to spray the paint set myself, as I have a decent 25 gal compressor and a couple of guns and airbrushed, hopefully a good learning experience.

Best wishes for a good riding day!

Thanks GUYS!

I rebuilt the petcocks this morning, and am currently trying to figure out if I have all the gas cap hardware.
Onward and upward!

Great progress there Ben, good luck getting the gas cap sorted in short order.

What are you considering for colors/patterns? Something stock or period correct custom maybe?

73 only came in pearlescent blue. I priced out an original paint job from two different painters, close to $1500.
I really want to protect the the metal, so not sure on color.

That's why I sprayed my 400 with rattle-can flat black, easy to touch up, easy to match.

Are you by any chance interested in having a beer up in Gloucester tomorrow evening?
