No spark on two cylinders and weak spark on the other two. New coils, plugs, and wires getting installed this weekend.
Then get her idling to warm up and do compression check, check valve clearances, and probably disassemble/clean out carbs.

Here's a better picture. It won't look anything like this when it's done but i guess this will be my "before" pic.

02-06-2015, 11:32 PM
so what do plan to do with the bike

02-07-2015, 1:14 PM
Lots haha.
brat style.
Stubby rear fender and loop the rear shock mounts. Solo seat. Replace rear struts with shocks. New exhaust. Engine Refresh (new gaskets, ignition). Put front forks back on(they are on backwards?)and rebuild front forks. Probably new bars. Going to hold off on paint till after summer. Hope to be posting pics of the progress.

02-07-2015, 3:47 PM
Switching to a single speedometer gauge and rewire everything. I have sidecovers too. Prob see how it looks with them after the wiring is done.

02-08-2015, 2:16 AM
Worked on the bike some today. My friend, Tyler, installed the new coils, wires, and plugs. And of course the battery was dead So didn't get a chance to fire it up. He also cut off that trailer fender that looked terrible.

Also reinstalled the rear shocks and messed around with a section of rear frame that the previous owner cut off. Hoping to use it as a short rear loop. Still have to de tab it and weld it on.

New clutch cable goin on too. Pretty grimey in there.

This wiring looks like a nightmare.

We were about to do all the brake pads/new brake fluid and bleed but one of the front calipers has a bolt instead of a bleeder screw so we had to hold off.

02-08-2015, 12:05 PM
Wanting to move the battery mount to the underside of the seat rails and go with a slightly smaller battery. Any suggestions on a battery? Would love something more on the maintenance free side.

Curious what you find. We're gonna go with a smaller antigravity battery when the time comes. Something like -> this (http://www.dimecitycycles.com/9-7-amp-hour-240-cca-antigravity-8-cell-battery.html). When you figure out what you're gonna go with, post it here. Cheers, dude.

02-08-2015, 2:06 PM
That battety looks really nice but a bit more than i would like to pay. Esp. if i need to buy a special charger for it as well.

02-19-2015, 2:23 AM
My friend Tyler finally got his new shop all moved, so work commences....
Wiring harness was too buggered up. Redoing the whole thing. Moving all the handlebar controls to under the seat. New throttle tube assembly coming. Got antsy and put one grip on.

It has a newer regulator/rectifier so thatll be reused but new starter solenoid, starter switch, points and condenser will go on.

Heres Tyler, putting the bike up after taking off the header tubes.
Gettin ready to flip the forks around the correct way. Then the brakes can get worked out.

02-19-2015, 5:35 AM
from the looks of things the previous owner was clueless..... imo you should probably dig around as much as possible and make sure more retardation isnt hiding in bad areas.

02-19-2015, 11:36 AM
Don't worry. It is getting fully worked over. just had some lazy mods on it when i got it. Previous owner was trying to do a hack job of making a bobber.

03-08-2015, 12:40 AM
i have been collecting parts for a while. Should have everything i need to put it back together by the end of next week. Pics will follow soon. The weather here is finally warming up so im getting hyped to get this thing going.

03-08-2015, 9:00 AM
if the spark is still the same, set your points...

put the left hand cyclinder top dead center using alignment marks if it has them, turn the plate to it's mark if it has one, find something the thickness of a match book cover stick it between the point gap adjust til the cover can gently slide between them.

03-09-2015, 7:59 PM
Tyler got the calipers all cleaned up.

Wire came in the post so Tyler got started with that while i started cleaning stuff off. Also received new stainless allen bolts for motor covers.

Also got the carbs off to look over. Going to clean up the motor some more.

03-17-2015, 2:59 AM
Waiting...waiting on parts.
Yesterday took the forks apart to clean up and replace seals. the allen bolt on the bottom of one of the fork tubes just spins. Anyone have any idea how to get it apart? If not, i guess i need to find another right fork tube :(
heres how she sits now...

Also spent a couple hours on the wire wheel cleaning these up for paint.

Going to start painting parts now that the weather has been nice.
Hope to have more stuff in by friday. Waiting on a speedometer from Australia. And some rubber stuff from the UK.

03-19-2015, 12:17 AM
Is the socket for the allen wrench deep enough to get a left handed drill bit or easy out in it? If so, put some heat on it and turn it out slowly.

if the socket isnt deep enough, try to drill it out a bit.... again, slowly.

03-19-2015, 1:39 AM
Tyler used some moto magic and got it out.
Everything should start to pick up speed now that we have most everything for the build.

03-22-2015, 2:57 AM
Spent a few hours sanding the frame for paint. Still some tabs to remove and weld the rear hoop. Then on to paint and reassembly.

All the tabs taken off and hoop kinda fitted. Still needs to be adjusted a little Before it gets welded on. trying to figure out what to do with the battery tray. This is how she currently sits.

After hours of grating and sanding. Going to do one more pass to fill the spots that we missed and then the final sand before paint.

Picked up the sheet metal for the seat pan. Set the tank on to get an idea of what its going to look like. Still need to fill the badge spots on the tank and sand it down smooth. Im going to do something fun with the tank paint.

Tires are mounted. Mocked up the rear to find fender placement.

Final filling and sanding on frame. We werent going to remove the motor to paint the frame but since its this far taken down we might as well. So tomorrow, hopefully, we will prime and paint the frame.

keep us posted,

Digging it.

04-19-2015, 1:37 AM
Had to put the rear wheel and hub back together to get the correct placement for the fender. Tail light is just sitting on there. We cant seem to get the rear tire to fully seat the bead. One section wont slide up the to the edge of the rim fully. Its like 2 mm off. Spent a lot of time trying different tricks to get it seated. no luck. Probably need some proper tire lube.

04-19-2015, 6:03 AM
Looks good. If you arent worried about it, I would ditch the kick starter and wire the bike with a capacitor if you want to go with something thats hard to see. Would have to make sure that your charging system is tip top though. But if you are planning on keeping the side covers (my opinion is that side covers are awesome and look great when they are painted nice, and a lot of bikes look like shit without em, unless the frame's metal work is good) then the battery size wont matter because it is covered up. Either way, keep posting lots of pictures, I really like these bikes and good luck with the build. Spend some money on good quality mufflers, when the time comes.

04-19-2015, 10:51 PM
The frame will be completely open. We are making a small panel that will attach to the side of the battery tray for the switches So hopefully it will hide most of the wiring and starter solenoid and stuff.
I kinda like the kickstart so its staying.
Once the brackets for the fender are done, we should be able to paint.
Thats the only thing holding back the build right now.
I'll post as many pics as i can. Haha i love seeing threads with lots of pics too.

05-05-2015, 10:55 AM
Fender tabs welded on now. Took the motor off the frame. Motor is all cleaned up.

Awesome work mate, can't wait to see it finished.

05-14-2015, 1:08 PM
Frame is primered. Next photos should be painted.

05-14-2015, 10:28 PM
Keep up the great work!

What did you use to get the engine so clean like that?

05-15-2015, 12:33 PM
The area where the front sprocket is took a long time, brake cleaner and a wire brush. Then sprayed it down with simple green and let it sit for a bit, then power washed it. Went to a local rubber manufacturer and got rubber lab stoppers to plug all the holes up Before washing.

05-31-2015, 12:16 AM
Got a good amount of work done today. Here come the pics.

Frame all painted up.

Some small thing done yesterday.
Brakes are reassembled. Both front and rear brake pads i ordered do not fit the calipers (yes, i made sure i was ordering the correct ones). So ordered from a different vendor this time.
Clutch inspected.
Still need to pick up one valve shim to finish the valve job.
Began running the wiring for the new loom.

Valve job done, all covers put back on.
Now to finish wire loom, seat upholtered, tank paint, tune and ride.

Got a bit more small stuff put on yesterday. Throttle cables installed, began making a bracket to move the speedo down between the headlight and bars (looked off where it was before). Mounted the tail light.

Also threw the new exhaust on to check clearances, looks great. I may get a muff for it later on, but for now, straight dump. This is where we're at now.

Tyler finished fabbing the plate for all the controls. Still needs to be welded to the battery box so no pics of that yet.

Cut out a new seatpan out of 20g steel and bent it to fit the rails. The other one was too thin.

Tank is clear coated now. Used spraymax 2k clear. Wetsanded with 1500 and 2000 grit. Washed all off before i start polishing.

Bike is pretty much all wired now too. Waiting on a new brake light switch.

Polished and waxed. Not too bad for my first rattlecan job.

Finally got time to get this thing moving again. Had an issue with a leaking oilpan. New gasket and we are good to go. Tyler and I got the bike started. Sounds great.

Just have to wrap up a few loose ends and I'll be riding.
