    Bit of an update. Thanks tiggersteve for the poke  :038: ....no surprise it needs more than I thought it would. SWMBO has named it the BOAT......you know ...Bring Out Another Thousand.   :015:

    I did get it running for a bit, but it wasn't right. 

    Top end needs love.  Cylinders need rebored and had a leaky valve stem seal.  Those parts are at the machinist's now, so I've been working on the back half.  New shocks, tires, brakes, wheel bearings, and chain.   Been doing a little cleaning along the way as well. Trying to keep the original patina as much as I can.

    As for ' B O A T ' - Sadly my wife doesn't use acronyms and most of her sentences begin with the letter ' F '  :745:
