More work done. Aside from installing my new seat cover,I’m done. Adjusted the valves and cam chain. Replaced leaking accelerator pump seal(again). Painted the valve cover, air box, rear fender and taillight. Repainted the alt cover but installed a extra aluminum one from my 81. Replaced the worn foot rubbers. And installed my new set of pipe masters

Your bike looks fantastic, Mike.
Is that a new replica Bridgestone front tire with the raised white lettering?
Did you have any interfence with the rear brake pedal and the PipeMasters?

I painted the lettering on my battle axes. Pipe masters bolted right on, rubber stops for stands worked great and no interference with brakes
