    Got the tires mounted and cleaned and painted all the small parts. Got the wheels back on so I finally can roll it around. Then my cousin came over later on and we put the motor back in. It's really starting to look like a bike again.

    Put some more parts on the bike today and found a bunch of stuff I still needed to clean and paint. Ordered some more parts and made a plate/ tail light mount.

    Sneak peak at the paint. It's black with and gold with some pearl over top.It turns dark blue in the sun. Pinstriper is supposed to outline the gold this week just don't know what color yet. Any input? I'm thinking something bright.

    I'd just go white, but I'm not a fan of technicolor paint jobs. Call me boring!

    Got the tins back from the pin striper. told him to go with a blue he thought would look good. I'm very happy how they turned out.

    I think a 78?? gs1000. The front fits right on but for the rear you have swap the bearings from the 550 wheel and use the 550 sproket carrier.

    Finished the wiring, put the exhaust on, put the carbs and air filters on. The filters hit the frame but I think they will be alright. Hopefully gonna have it running this week. Still need to finish the seat and decide which bars to use.

    It's almost done. Just some little things to finish up. Got it running last night and took it for a quick ride down the street today. Carbs need a little more work, Valve cover leaks, forks need to be stiffer.....

    Nice looking bike man. Love the tail you fabbed up.

    How did you lengthen the linkage for the rear master cylinder? I'm going to be running one that looks exactly the same. I'm thinking about just threading a piece of rod that makes up the difference and then using threaded hex stock to connect the two. Looks like you may have done something similar just using nuts, but can't quite tell.

    That's exactly what I did. The nuts you can see are just lock nuts to keep everything from spinning.
