Yup.

Got most of the front end, brakelines, clocks, controls, etc back on last couple of nights.

Immediate needs to get running:
Throttle tube, throttle cable, mod PWK carb tops to suit
Carb oil line fittings
Fuel tap/petcock
UNI filters
Clutch cable

The rest is just assembly.

The PWKs look happy in their new home, and, once again, those PIPES! Beautiful. I like the blue spots, too.

Just waiting on a Motion Pro IV style fuel bottle and UNI filters.

If all goes to plan, I should be able to fire the LC up tomorrow night!

Even when you’ve done all the right steps, it feels good to have it all work.
