hump cleaned up nicely. installed bench seat and rear rack. Got some more accessories to add and badges to add. still need to clean the rims/hubs. the casa seat cover is nice, but a serious bitch to get on. Slowly MODifying it.

Let me know when you want to powder coat the rims, I got some stuff to go and it's a better deal the more you take.

what I thought was a carb sensitive to warm weather was actually an air leak. most likely where the exhaust connects to the u-bend manifold. tore it down, assembly almost done

got a top tip from Pattric today on that area since I am about to re due this fix once my parts get here...
- us copper permatex goo on all surfaces and also on the threads of the exhaust studs as a "lock tight"

and if doing the head nuts...
- use the longer head nuts that are called coupling nuts (there is usually only one on the top end... he says the greater thread surface area helps them from getting loose due to friction)

good tips

I use the red goo for the exhaust slip joint but I bet that the copper stuff would be fine too
