    They look fantastic! It's nice to see the updates and to know that you followed through with the projects.

    Finished my buddy’s bike. This was one of the two originally ones we purchased. We had to do the normal restoration and rebuild the top end of the motor. Other than that it went really smoothly.


    The 6 auction bikes have been a pain in the *** with everything. The second auction bike is now 100 percent complete. We are going to sell it in a few days and start on the restoration of auction bike 3.

    Since the weather is a bit cold here its time to start on bike 3. The previous post showed what it looked like before we started breaking it down. Right now my jack is broken so I’ll grab my buddies tomorrow and take out the engine, the wheels, kickstand, handlebars, and the forks. Then it’s time for paint, reassembly, and replacing parts needed / troubleshooting. For those keeping track the restoration went like this. We started on the 6 auction bikes from the sheriffs department in Maine. We finished and sold bike 1 and fished bike 2. That one is still for sale. The first two we purchased (for my buddy and myself) have been completed. Now we are starting on the third auction bike.

    Finally got bike #3 stripped to the frame.

    Here is a picture of some of the stuff we painted today.



    We will give it a day to set up and then get into to assembly in a few days. This usually involves trouble shooting, replacing seals / parts, and fluids. We also lowered to price of Bike 2 to $5,200 and then it goes to auction.

    Started getting the bike back together. It’s getting colder here so no more time to ride. This leaves more free time to get this one done. So far the following has been completed.
    -Upgraded the subframe bolts to Eagle Mike and red Loctite.
    -Replaced the subframe. It looked a bit rusted.
    -Replaced the passenger peg mounts and pegs. Looked too rusty as well.
    -New Dunlop D606s, Heavy Duty inner tubes, and new rim strips.
    -New Air filter
    -New Air filter door seal
    -New taillight lense seal
    -Fork Seals replaced / fork boots replaced with OEM parts
    -Greased the pivot, front axle bolt, rear axle bolt, and speedo drive
