Here are two pictures of the finished product. I figure about 60 hours in total spent in tearing down, cleaning, polishing and rebuilding. The only parts replaced to get it running were the top piston ring, carb float bowl gasket, spark plug, fuel petcock and fuel line. Nothing has been repainted or re-chromed. I purchased, but have not installed a replacement for the left handgrip mounted mirror. The tightening nut on the original one was damaged. I still have it. All lights work and so does the original horn! This was a (sometimes) fun winter project. I haven't replaced the tires, and since this is more of a novelty project that will never be taken on the road for any distance, I don't think I will. The almost 40 year old inner tubes are holding air. I bought a replacement for the front fender rear edge dirt/mud guard but haven't installed that yet either. The replacement seems to be just a bit smaller than the original, but I think a little time with a heat gun on low just might be enough to make it work. Thanks to all who provide advice, guidance and assistance!
