I had a good weekend with my rebuild too…
Managed to get the carbs on, all properly seated with new rubbers and clamps (replaced the standard crosshead bolts with some little allen bolts – I know its not original but they are so much easier to access and tighten properly) and I even managed to remember to plumb the throttle cables in this time too. I also cleaned and repainted the headlamp bowl and surrounding hardware, stripped, cleaned and repainted the temp gauge, speedo and rev counter (put the glass in the ultrasonic cleaner and it came up a treat), rebuilt the front master cylinder and got the clip ons in place.
So now its a case of getting the repaired loom finished up and I might be getting close to a start up.
Painted tank should be back next week too… pics will follow I promise
