Re: 8Ball's Winter Cafe Project
I have had a chance to go through the parts pile and here are a few things that are in it:
-All of the stock parts
-The bike actually ran, but the carbs are pretty messed up, so there is a set of 2mm larger KZ carbs that I plan to re-rack on the GS rack. (Yes I am capable of extensive carburetor work). Other parts that came in the pile:
-new Dyna electronic ignition system (with coils)
-KFY Chinese knock-off shocks (cheap I know, but I will see how they work)
-A dual cat-eye tail light assembly
-New Progressive fork springs (already installed)
-All Balls tapered steering stem bearings (I need to do some machining to finish the installation per the instructions)
-GSX-R master cylinder and clutch lever (with new clutch cable)
-New N.O.S. Jardine exhaust, but the collector and muffler are for something else (KZ maybe?), so I may be doing some custom exhaust work. (I actually test fit the system and found that the collector and megaphone aren't actually wrong, but the welded-on hanger is in the wrong position. so all it needs is to be cut off and re-welded in the right place.)
Things that my friend already did include drilling the front rotor, painting the forks, headlight, triple trees, and engine.
