I just completed my rebuild of a salvaged cycle. I bought it with the beautiful Stars and Stripes you see on the pics. Forks were pretty well dry, engine was leaking oil, and swing arm was dented (didn't find that one until later). I rebuilt the forks, changed out all fluids, filters, plugs, bought a new front fairing, painted all plastic and gas tank (had dents fixed in the tank), replaced every fastener with a stainless counterpart, replaced the swing arm, and cleaned/lubed the chain and replaced the master link. I outsourced the painting to a friend who runs a local body shop . . . I was shocked at the difference a little paint made! Last item to tackle is an electrical issue with the new blinkers. I bought LED's and the blinkers do not blink properly. I had a friend tell me I might need to add some resistors. Anybody have a recommendation or some experience to share? Thanks.
