The cleaning and painting (except for the plastic stuff) aredone and the reassembly starts. This morning I put the engine back into the repaired and repainted frame. Had to cut out and braze in a piece of steel sheet by the left swingarm mount and install a helicoil in one of holes where the upper triangular motor mount bracket bolts onto the left side of the frame.After that it was just a matter of wire brushing the frame, cleaning it with solvent priming and putting on a couple coats of gloss black enamel. Putting the engine in single handed worked okay, left the subframe off, hung the frame from the ceiling on some rope so I could ajust the height and left the engine strapped to the bike lift. It was easy to jockey the frame into placeover the engine, slip the mounting bolts in and slide on the subframe. I reassembled the driveline into the swingarm, cleaned and repacked those bearings and have the new seals in and will install the swingarm this afternoon.

Looks good-----Gambler started something.

Did you do much to the engine besides the obvious cosmetic stuff?

No, like I said when I started, I'm not doing a full Gambler. I did a compression check looked at the plugs, tested the starter, got a set of carbs from eBay which I've cleaned and overhauled, replaced the rocker cover gaskets and timing belt gaskets and replaced the timing belts. That's about it for the engine, it was in better shape than the rest of the bike.

NICE!!!!!

These rebuild threads are great. Hopefully I won't have to do anything this extensive on mine for a while, but these threads will be great reference when/if I do.

Sure does look great! Let me ask you, what paint did you use on the motor? Is there a paint code or name for it? Why enamel paint instead of base coat/clear coat on the frame?

You've got me motivated to start mine. I just have to wait until after Turkey day.

1984 1200I Candy Cobalt Blue over Bright Silver Metallic w/ Black & Silver Marbling. Poorboy alternator. Progressive springs and a comfy gel seat.
