You might consider a "pure" resto-mod.... like a twin with points and with at least twin carbs for a personal challenge. You already got nice 292.

Did I just see one cringing on that thought?

Find a nice cowl with side vents and flip up light.

By the way the frame looks great. Nice job on the bottom side blending all in.

Good luck moving forward.

Longnecker ... I cringed so violently that I have whiplash!



Used some 0000 steel wool on some decent bumpers ... center rubber is from Goose ...



Bottom end is done ... waiting on the boring job to the cylinder to be done ...

Got the new seat base plywood cut. Thanks to JoeOlympique for the measurements.





A friend of mine did the fiberglass repairs in exchange for the labor in an engine rebuild. It's fun when you can get things done with a little horse trading ... thanks Greg!

Got a little shop time in this morning.

Restored the recoil starter ...





I had gotten an unused speedo for this sled a while back ... but the chrome bezel had been butchered up by someone.



I had another speedo on the shelf with a good bezel ... so I decided to try and swap them. With gentle prying from the back side, I was able to remove the bezel without damaging it and installed it onto the NOS unit.



Turned out pretty good I think. I may install this one on the show sled and swap out the unit on that sled onto this driver one.

Stop by my house any time and give me paint lessons.

I noticed the blast cabinet in the background of a few pics.  Any advice, dos/don'ts, better/best for someone in the market.    Any critical size minimums?  Vacuum a necessity?  Steel/plastic?  Medium for specific jobs.

PM sent on the cabinet

I use glass bead for pretty much all my blasting which included aluminum and steel parts.
