    I'm getting a heater for the shop tomorrow it was 10 here today with the wind chill. It will probably warm right up as soon as I get it but at least I will have one

    Have a few updates, got the bars internally wired the front wheel is being cut right now by RC components it's a 21 inch chrome majestic with matching rotor. I picked up a HD springer headlight at the swap meet and test mounted it. Oh yeah almost forgot the master cylinder and caliper are from a Stryker and I got a Speigler stainless brake cable. I'm going to try to run a 6 piston yzf750 caliper will it work? I will let you know

    You are doing a great job on this restoration! I know who you mean about motorcycle salvage places!
    They have made me so mad. Cost me money,
    Some salvage places are good others are morons. The good places hire motorcycle mechanics.

    Use epoxy stripper, NOT paint and varnish remover.

    Florida is where the American Welding Society does corrosion testing.

    We made it to Oklahoma ! As soon as I can get all the boxes and packing paper out of the garage I will get the roadstar back on the lift and get back to work. We finally got cable service Monday we had coax cable and we needed cat 5 so they re wired a bunch of stuff. Anyways hope to get going again soon

    Made some good progress today, with the exception of wheels tires and gaskets every other part was purchased used and restored/repainted by me including the body work

    For some unknown reason the motorcycle salvage where I got the engine took every engine cover off and then put them back with very little or some of the gasket removed. I just decided to remove every cover clean inside and reassemble it would have really made me freak out to start the engine and have oil spraying/leaking everywhere.
