Got time to do a bit more to it on the weekend got a mate to weld the ignition coil bracket back on to the frame still unsure how it broke off in the first place. After welding I primered it and painted it and am happy with the result, doesn't stand out when the coil is mounted.


Got my second hand radiator to replace this piece of art that the previous owner had left.

While I had the radiator out I acid dipped them and sanded the tanks here is a comparison with the old and the cleaned radiators, really makes the bike look loved. I then bolted them in and got the engine half bolted on, need a new mount for the expansion chamber before I can start it up.

Hopefully by next weekend I can have it in the frame and able to run but still very far off being done

Got the engine in the frame had less time than expected this weekend so didn't get it running. Also went overboard painting the mounting bolt heads and nuts in frame colour (got too dark to take pics but come up very well). Also filled it up with coolant no leaks and gearbox oil no leaks so very happy!

The only thing I am unsure of is the clutch cable routing from the engine to the lever, it doesnt look right to me? While I had the carb out I thought I might as well pull it apart and give it a clean. Was pretty grubby inside as you can see and the complete lack of vent hoses would not have been helping things either. Tested the needle and seat and it held pressure well which is surprising for this bike as everything else I have been tested has been ****ed haha.

While it was out I gave it an external clean as well, will need to find some vent hoses am going to go to the bike shop and see if they sell it by the metre because Suzuki want $45 for the 3 hoses.

Hopefully I can have it running by next weekend so I can start doing things that aren't the engine. Next on the agenda will be tidy up all the things around the swingarm/ chain area and possibly get the rear shock redone depending on cost. Then on to the Front end and I'll be able to take the old girl for a ride!
