    These are the things I refurbished to get the bike ready:

    - rear brake shoes
    - front brake lines replaced
    - master cylinder rebuilt
    - front caliper rebuilt
    - carburetors rebuilt (thanks, Dave!)
    - valves adjusted
    - valve cover refurbished
    - fuse box upgraded
    - instrument cluster lighting converted to LEDs
    - gas tank interior stripped and lined
    - petcock rebuilt
    - new fuel filter and lines
    - oil/filter changed
    - new plugs
    - new side-stand switch
    - new hand grips
    - did I mention lots and lots of cleaning?

    I should mention the deep sense of loss I experienced when the bike no longer required constant attention. But, riding helped that!

    Excellent original! I Have the same bike. Your pictures are making me feel slightly guilty for going the modified route.... But I've already shortened the frame ....so I'm committed.
