Simply stunning!!!

Just a hint:

low head bolts will look better on the back of your seat.
online-schrauben.de has nice ones in stainless steel:



Best regards

Dunno, but I think they look cool with a Haro tankrucksack and some
sleeping back/tent on the rear and a can of Castrol on top. Southbound...

I did a lot of work the last weeks.
It looks like there is no end to all the little problems.
But there is an end to my budget Sad
Things I did:

-new oil + filters + sparkplugs
-mounted a speedometre + new cable
-mounted a new oilpressure switch
-mounted new gaskets + oilseal so no leaking oil anymore (i hope)
-mounted the tank + new fuelcaps

and still have lots to do like fixing a leaking brakecilinder. some electrical stuff like a oil light and neutral light.
fixing some sparkcables (to short).

But slowly i'm seing light at the end of the tunnel. cheers

Yesterday I revised (?) the masterbrakecilinder because it was leaking. I also cleaned the brakegaliper. The braking is still poor but maybe a '72 single brakedisc doesn't brake any better. I'm used to double brakediscs on my XS (much better)

What I do like is the metal look of all the parts on the bike.

It still runs only on 3 cilinders so I have to buy a compressiontester so I can find out what is wrong. After I placed new gaskets on the dynamo and gear part it still throw out oil. I think it has to do whith the cables that are coming from the dynamo but I'm not sure. It starts to become more frustrating this bike.
But I don't give up. If I can get it fixed I'm going to remove the engine and take it apart

Today I found out that when I use the choke it runs a lot better and on 4 cilinders. So I have to find out what is wrong .
I've made a short ride in our street and the front brake is braking a lot better now.
My neighbours really loved the sound

So the dark clouds are fading.........

Me too.
Its a blank frame whith only transparent paint over it. So I decided to make more parts blank.
Today did some work on the carbs and couldn't find anything. So I made a testride from a few kilometres. But she still runs bad. Only whith the choke a little bit open she runs better.
Think I have to synchronize the carbs.

Be carefull with clear coat over blank steel. I did that, despite being warned, on the headlight of my BMW. I can practically hear it rusting in the shed.

Is that so?
I would have thought that a clearcoat would protect the steel...

On my cb it is not a problem.
Only the rearbridge has a bit rust but nothing special and it gives a nice look.
