Thanks. The engine came that way. It’s extremely clean for a 20 year old bike. The speedometer has 8,300 miles on it and it worked when I took it apart. According to the guy I bought it from, it had been sitting outside for 10 years and the frozen bolts confirm that. The engine tho, looks super clean!Good stuff, great progress, and aside from ditching the black valve covers for silver the engine looks really solid, I'd just Simple Green, brush, and garden hose it clean. Also think about new cush bushings, basically just do all the little shit since it's apart and will just be done (at least as far as annoying maintenance)
I’m going to paint the frame this Saturday if it’s nice. My color came today, but I wish I bought two cans.
