Fork Fix.

Got some help from Z.
Finally got the chrome fork seal holder covers off...
Here is what is left.

I am not sure which is newer or better or whatever.
2 with brass bushing<>2 with steel?
 I had read that it was hard to find the right cb160 fork seals...
I ordered what I could get and of course they were the smaller OD easier to find kind.

No matter,  just modify the metal shell of the old one to fit......
Time to turn.
 Not perfect but it should work.
 Be safe out there.

Baby dream, Baby.

Left side.
Hot water trick.
Got off the grip.

 50 years and 10,000 miles later.
 Insides of these looked so new...

Pulled hard for over 2 miles.
Dogs get cabin fever, too.

A bandana a day.

Keeps the boredom away.
 I think I am getting worse at sewing.

Engine barf.

 I need a cam chain riveting tool.
"Mines" is too damn big.
The snug down was essential.
Oh, how the Honda bond does cure.
 Dental tools.

To. Do. Dreamin'.

Long list.
I love this bike.

Modeselektor. Rapanthem.

CB160 woes.
 Lucky to have options?
They all need rebuilt.
The chromed up shroud is the most annoying thing in the world to take off....
Moyou agrees.
 To do.
 Clean up the wiring.
New rectifier.
Sitter cover.
 New veins in the controls.
Bar-bender fixer-upper.
I don't think the clutch returns as youthfully as I feel when I ride old beans.
I am going to put in a new or stiffer spring in the clutch mechanism and see if that helps.
I need a classier exhaust, also.

Bandana Tuesday. Etsy Open.

Get busy livin' or get busy dyin'.

Etsy shop is open.
 All black bias tape.
My sweet daughter.
 New paint, boards, and peeper stopper.
Why did it take me so long to get this album.
DPR fuel.
Daft punk.

Re-build Set-up.

Maybe santa will stop by tomorrow and help me finish up.

Cam chain went swimming earlier.
Ready for cylinders.
 If there is an arrow on the piston, point it toward the exhaust.
If there is IN stamped on it, well then that faces the intake.
Perfect song for an X-mas eve alone.
