I removed the JB weld around the clutch cable guide and ghetto-fabbed a new bracket. It all works but i would be happy to get suggestions on how to make it look better.

I am thinking a coat of silver VHT paint - same as the forks. I suppose the whole deal will look better when i get the cases and cylinder head vapour blasted too.

I'd remove the barrel too, and clean barrel and head off bike.
Save a lot of flushes of coolant.

black frame looks good with yellow tank - the blue seat cover is ok for now but might get swapped out for charcoal or black later on.
