Well I figured I better start my own build thread,since I was posting on Paulrxs650's Build thread. I picked up a free low mileage 1978 special after I'd been looking here for ideas and tech info awhile. Here's what I started with. Beat up but complete. I didn't waste too much time and got her running after I figured out the po had switched coil wires. She ran pretty good,but went ahead and installed a pamco so I wouldn't have to mess with the points setup again. I got busy and stripped her down for the Tc Bros hardtail install. Thank's to friends I've picked up a rear fender for free. Started to do the mock up with ideas I've picked up from here. The rear brake setup in progress. Gonna go with the stock gauges.I think they work on this build. Forgive the welds so far. I'll clean up and finish the welds properly when I blow her apart. Got the fender mounts mocked up and fender cut down to fit. The peg mounts.I saw this idea on here I think.Remember cheap. Had to get her outside for a better look. Finally got the tank on and partially mounted till I get her tore down.Yeah Yeah,I went with a sporty tank. Also got the seat and electrics tank installed. I weenied out and didn't shave the legs,but I did resealed and polished them. Went with 650 centrals gaiters.I dig em. And yes I had to get her outside in the sun for a look. I decided to tweak the side stand as it wasn't at the right angle. I think I'm gonna try to use the factory head pipes and run them under the bike with some free from friends pipes. That's it so far.Let me know if there's something I'm doing wrong.Any suggestions are welcomed.
