Well its all together and running great, decided to keep it all original and ride it as is. What i had to do to get it to this point, rebuild the carbs, all new rubber everywhere, throttle cable, re-foamed the seat, k&n air filter and battery. and that's about it i put about $1800 into it so with the original $500 cost of the bike $2300 total...think i came out OK on this one....Jim

looking into having my rims rechromed, getting prices of $300.00 per rim, seams like alot or have chroming prices gone up that much since i last had items chromed maybe 15 years ago. maybe just better off buying new rims? does this price seam correct.   thanks Jim

11  The Restoration Shop / Fuel (gas - petrol) Tanks, Side Covers and Air Box / air filter K&N vs Aftermarket on: January 22, 2012, 04:47:05 PM
after buying you basic aftermarket paper mesh air filter on e-bay only to find that's its to high to fit into my stock airbox, leaving around a 1/4" gap, so much so that the bolts won't even start. i measured the height and came up with 2.975 so i ordered the K&N which stated that it was 2.750 high a difference of .225 so i received it yesterday and it fits fine with just a slight gap, so bottom line any filter higher than 2.750 will not fit into a 69-70 airbox....i also turned up 2 stand offs and tapped them for 6mm and installed them onto the  airbox bolts now i can fully tighten up the bolts without putting unwanted pressure on the plastic...jim

you might be right, as i only tried the ignition key just assuming thats how it worked, i will double check when the i get the bike back from the shop.

as far as i know this is the orignial tank, i will ask the orignial owner more about this bike in the spring when he returns from wintering in fla.. it does use the same key as the ignition.
