Hard to tell from the small pics, but it looks like a clean bike.  Good luck.
Take care,
David

I made a soda blaster last weekend with the information I found here on the forum. I found some blasting material at Menard's called black blast. It worked very well in the clear tote for removing heavy paint on brake calipers that I am now polishing.

Looking good bluesmoke69.  The soda blaster will really help to clean up old snotty parts.

Got bike back together but had some exhaust leaks so the pipes will have to come off this weekend. Will install some new round copper washer. The bike sounded like a drag bike with open headers from the exhaust leak. Hope to get some riding in before the snow flies.

Going to make a foam mold for new seat plan this week. Anybody have a solo seat for single riding, and another seat so the wife or girlfriend can ride. Thinking of make a Fiberglass seat two diffrent molds one single and the other double. Thanks for any thoughts.
