How did you do the fuel cap? Did you have to dismantle it? Have to do the same..

I used a small brass brush (like a toothbrush) very gently.
Stopped and sprayed with diluted simple green and cleaned with old toothbrush.
That was the slowest part of the project.
Take your time and it will come along.

I discovered that for these small details, a Dremel with a polishing cone works great!

Came out ok. A decent match to 55 year old Rosso 847.

That rack turned out great!
I miss one on mine, so I bought a chrome one. It’s more polished then chrome, so it’s ok-ish.

Finally got her off of the work table and on the ground.
Motor goes in today then connect cables and final wiring and she will be ready to go.
It has been a slow process but learned a lot along the way.

Cables all installed and adjusted. Ends soldered and shortened.
Slid a section of plastic ice maker tubing over the cables after the pinchbolt and used a fourth hand tool to tension them. Worked great
Have an old set of metric ignition wrenches used the 8mm one and a 7mm socket with a screwdriver handle.
Made an easy job of it.
There really isn’t isn’t room for your hands for the clutch cable install. Glad I decided to roll her on the side.

You have assembled the rear brake cable clamp "inside-out/upside-down". Take it back apart and flip the outer side over. The hooky thing should hold the bent over cable (although you have shortened yours too much...), and be on the outside/bottom... The clamp is wide on both pieces to fit on the brake arm properly.

It's probably going to work ok as is, but not correct.

Almost there
Just mirrors, headlight screen and fuel.
VM1 I’ll deal with the brake cable in the fall. Just need to get her out of the basement now.

When you deal with the rear brake cable clamp you might want to flip that horn over at the same time... Is that an AC "shell" horn? Used to be the "shell" horns were DC... regardless, it's upside-down.

Carry on.

It is an AC shell horn. The connections rub on the steering
stop lug on the fork.
Ordered some extra horn gaskets to space it out for clearance.

First ride since rebuild. Everything works. New suspension really makes a difference. Glad I went with the anti dive bracket and the Newfren brake shoes are amazingly good.
Just a short 11mi run up and down hills and across the UW Madison campus
Pic is on Bascom Hill across from the observatory.
One of the nicest views on campus.

After riding some I thought the clutch was way to stiff.
Took a good look at the cable where it exits the rear of the frame and realized the cable outer is way too long.
Will be an easy fix, just need to drain the tank again so I can lay her on her side.

Put additional gasket behind horn so connectors would clear fork stop.
It’s right side up now!

You are on track w/ the clutch cable, lose the S curves and you'll see the difference. You could do the same w/ your shift cables while you're down there, they look longer than necessary as well.

Tip: Put a baggie under your gas cap to block the vent, tighten it good and you won't need to drain the tank to lay it over.

Bike is looking best ever, a real gem now, but I just can't love those mirrors.

Thanks for the tip on the tank.
I tried others and didn’t like the “Micky Mouse look of the taller stems.
These work well to see behind and as I always rode with bar end mirrors am really comfortable with the height.
It’s all what one is comfortable with.

Did a plug chop after a 20 mile ride.
Second gear full throttle up a 6% grade.
Plug has 100+ miles on it.
Elena has been running well thru the whole rpm range.
Really pleased with how plug looks. Jetting (19/19 with bellmouth and uni filter 80 main 42 idle air correction out 1 ˝ turns)

Technically not a plug “chop” ...but yes that is a nice color. Glad it’s running well.

The carb and exhaust were on her when I purchased from V oodoo

Finally got out of town for a 30+ mi country ride thru the rolling twisty roads west of Madison. She was really great running along at 25 to 30 in second.
The suspension is stiff enough to handle well with an acceptable ride.
The Newfren brake shoes and the anti dive bracket work amazingly well.

Hey Harbinger, where's your sense of romance?? I mean, the dude even notices the highlights in her hair. He's just that tuned in to his lady. So romantic. Ha ha.

Exmayor--Elena looks soooo good. Fabulous and meticulous work!
