Ok!

I got the new tires.

I put a home made radiator shroud on it (I really disliked the the plastic one). i cannot remember who's I saw that was black metal but I really liked it. I copied (without permission I am ready for the reprimand) it and now have one.



It has been quite an adventure and learning curve but I am ready for a test ride this weekend. It will only be around the neighborhood. I have my little guy this weekend.



Oh also the front right fork started leaking right after the tire was put on.

I guess I will have to figure out that procedure.

I will give an update and post pictures after the ride.

My forks started leaking last time I changed my tires.



Of course the seals were 30 years old and needed changing but.......



I couldn't help but wonder if letting the forks hang/float without the weight of the bike



pressing down on em' pushed the seals over the edge.......



Not that it really matters but if its so we might have delayed the leaking situation....
