My $Free.99 Project

Did ya find all the parts needed from pics in January?
 
Just for my FYI: once someone welds the crank pins, they can't be ground-down, rebuilt and re-welded?

Just a guess on my part 'cause I don't actually know...

I'd say yes they can. Grind the weld down, press apart and back together and re-weld. How that affects balance is anyone's guess, but I'd think the initial welding would throw it off anyway, so who knows.

I would agree.
The crank should be statically balanced if anything is done to it. Personally I would check (and if needed correct) any crank (modified or not) for static balance and end run out before installing. Perhaps the biggest difference in regards to vibrations.
 
Well, the head is en route to @BluzPlayer for some magic. Can't wait to see what he can do, thanks again Rick!!

In other news, I was convinced to clean up and re-paint the frame since I'm this far down anyway... Got some other neat tidbits too, and test fitted the shocks and braced swingarm.

Started working on the Weber conversion for my goldwing too!

I was a commercial media blaster for many years.Now just do the smalls for personal projects.Very unfamiliar with vapor blast and the equipment,other than the very small parts unit a friend uses.What was the procedure to do wheels for example and what equipment was used.Or,is there a specific thread here on this process for larger parts?Looks interesting and effective.TIA
