Aah, you did the old measure once, cut twice.

Sadly, it's not the last time either of us will do that. Unless you have cabbie-like levels of OCD most projects will have wires with extra loops or corners that had to be rounded unevenly to make a clearance etc etc etc

The tail cowl thing has the base on...


Working on the fender between other shit

I'll clean greasy finger prints off before paint :p

Can I just fill these cracks with that plastic/epoxy stuff?


And since I can't stay on a single task for a whole evening got my risers about 90% ready to be mounted so I tossed em on to check out how it looks...




Off to see if I can find me a broad flat file at the 24hour store

Use a solder iron to weld the cracks up. Practise first and destructively test the join to see what you need todo. Zip tie is good filler rod.

Looking good thus far!

The guy I got it from got it from a guy in Farmington Hills named Mike, I think, who was the second owner from what I've found. I found this http://www.triumphrat.net/daytona-de...on-wunoff.html and this http://motownmuscle.com/forums/showt...-955i-2700-obo while researching the bike and exhaust, and the PO said he bought his in March.

The interwebs are creepy with stalking people.

Yeah. Mike is my friend. Took good care of it. Fixed some wiring issues and put new tires on it. I asked because,guy you bought it from put a lot of bs in the sale ad. Guy didnt put anything new on it and never had the dealer do all the work he claimed in the ad. Sorry to be a downer, its a great bike but check the valves and anything else the previous owner claimed to have done. look forward to what you do

Yeah I figured that out when I found that it was missing a header nut and most were loose... but I tend to treat every bike I get as if it were abused before it got to me so I've already got the valve cover off to check valves and and am planning on refreshing a couple gaskets that look leaky :-P

Took fucking ages to get the damn angle right with just sandpaper, angle grinder and files. Worth it I think.
Still going to rough up the surface of the triple under the risers and put a thin layer of JB in there to fill the gaps. Then I have to cut off the ignition loop, remove casting marks, fill the 3rd hole...

At this point it still doesn't look 100% but I'm done fussing as they look perfect when the bars are in them.


And underneath


Talked to my buddy today about paint instead of my idea of using PlastiDip... Turns out he's got PILES of pearl laying around and nowhere to use it that he's willing to donate if I do a "real paint job" and I can use all his equipment. Looks like I'm gonna start saving for paint
