    Not sure if it’s because it’s black but that pulley looks gigantic

    Yes, it's even worse in person looked like they jb welded a nut to the head. I found a nice one on eBay for 8 dollars!

    My compressor isn't big enough to run air tools for long or I would have gone after it with some 36 grit, just glad it's done that aircraft stripper stinks !

    Took me 2 days and a gallon of aircraft stripper but I didn't let it beat me. Now I can start the body work

    You're well on your way! Are you in need of anything, or do you pretty much have it all?

    Anything can be done... for the right price. What you're seeing is that much that Yamaha made was from some pretty poor cast metal and plating. A blast, some smoothing, or whatever, and whatever finish you want to go for will make them look show quality. OR, you could shop for a set in like new appearance, and start out ahead of the game.

    That's ugly! Just the front air filter mount, isn't it?

    The rocker boxes came out nice for how rough they were. Polished up the used cobra exhaust also
