    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

    Well I was able to find one on eBay for $25 shipped. Hope to have it by Christmas and I can button up the engine.

    Update - All of the engine pieces have been cleaned, sanded, primed and painted or polished. I'm waiting on a gasket from a buddy from LilHondas and then I should be able to button up the engine completely and move on to the frame and electrical. And of course I will be copper coating the gaskets just like I did on my CL350.

    Here's a pic of the engine - not all parts have been painted in this pic.

    Kids and I started to tear down the frame and suspension and found that the center nut on the triple tree is 29MM. Will run to the local hardware store to try and get a socket that will fit so that I can finish the breakdown.

    Inch and an eighth socket works just fine. (1 & 1/8)

    Update - Well favorable temps and ample time have moved along the project. I've been able to install the gears, new kickshaft, seals, cam tensioner and all the internal goodies needed to freshen up the motor. I then put the cases back together and then installed the main drive gears and the clutch.

    And you can call me "Mr. Hex Bolt" because there are NO JIS/Phillips screws here. I spent $60 on a complete kit (I looked through EVERY fiche and compiled a list of every nut bolt and washer needed for the entire bike and bought it all from BoltDepot.com) for the entire bike - engine to body so that I never have another stripped out JIS screw to deal with

    Next up I'll be buttoning up the right side, installing the piston, jug and getting ready to tackle the top end with new valves and springs. Then on to the stator with a new re-wired lighting coil and wiring harness (as described). If I get favorable weather I should have this build buttoned up by Spring Break.

    Well John if I know me (and I do) this will end up being a $1800 build for a $1000 bike I NEVER do anything just 100% - its always a bit of overkill because I likes what I likes.

    I'm going aftermarket with a Baja Design front headlight and a TrailTech Vapor in a custom fabricated mount between the shocks up front.

    Update -

    Sent the head to get assembled for the valves and springs. Now on to the electrics. I've bought all of the kapton tape, magnetic wire and have everything ready to go. Last little bit is to get the insulators.

    Does anyone know what this little spacer is called (right red spacer). It is about 1-2mm thick and looks to be rubbery but has markings like fabric. Is it fishpaper or vulcanized fiber or what? Any idea on where I can get some for my build? if this is not available then what should I use?

    Have you tried an electric motor repair shop? Many years ago, that's where I found mine and the wire I needed.
