Today I cleaned up the edges of the fins on the cyl and head. The holes drilled themselves. Then I made another tray to replace the one with the electronics stuff.:thumbsup:

Sat I got the 750 motor back from Jim. Sun I installed it with a single chain and cherry picker. Not a scratch:thumbsup:. Today I changed the rear sprocket and added a chain guard, installed the new VM34 Gary Hoos carbs, made new throttle cables, mounted the Morris Mag, and added the electric starter. Tomorrow I`ll time the mag and add the charging system and clutch cover. I plan on starting on the electronics tray this week. Lots to do.:shrug:

Today I timed the magneto, installed a new clutch cable and worm assembly, reinstalled the PMA and buttoned up the left side. Also mounted the left pipe and remounted the tank with a saddle bracket and reused the spanner nut for the center mount.

Today I made a template for the under seat battery/electronics box. Transferred it to a sheet of .050 alum and cut it out on the band saw. All I can say is "Give Me a Break":yikes: Box pan break that is. This was much harder than it looked in poster board.:shrug: I`ll get it welded up then I can start the complete re wire.:thumbsup: Side panels (number plates) will hide almost the whole box.

I spent 1 full hour spanking the monkey making these 4 saddle washers I used as stand off`s to mount a skid plate before the right side exhaust is mounted. Skid plate was left over from the Scrambler build and I cut it down to fit this frame and this exhaust system. I did all this while listening to the KC & The Sunshine Band 25th Anniversary Collection 2 disc album Glenda bought for me last year. :yikes::yikes: Somehow I survived.:shrug:
