I’d decided to send body parts to a painter, for new polyurethane clearcoat paint, and also to send the seat to a motorcycle upholsterer for a recover, at total cost together of $400. After these were off and away, I began working through the systems as defined by the chapters in the shop manuals. My sequence would be: engine/ transmission, fuel system and carbs, brakes/bearings/suspension and tires, electrical, cooling system, ignition and finally trim. I started with engine and clutch and transmission checks, as bad news here could scuttle the job. Fluids OK, cylinders and plugs OK, turnover with kick-starter OK, and no cracks, leaks or holes, so we kept going. The timing belts were replaced, though they looked new, since confidence in any 22 year old rubber is a bad idea. I waited too long to start the fuel system and tank, as I found rust inside the tank, along with real bad smelling brown gas. A serious rusted tank or leaky tank means removal from the frame, and that means disassembling the entire rear end. The frame was in excellent shape, and I removed an old Vetter fairing and the aftermarket floorboards and reinstalled a refurbished headlight, foot pegs and shift/brake levers from a used parts source in Tennessee.
