Lynnb

The new Newfren shoes come with tapered leading and trailing edges. I had to dress the ones on the 64 with a file to taper the square edges.

Looking very slick XM!

Saw the Pinasco brand tapered rollers a while back, but I see Polini also do a version which are a bit cheaper than the others. I might give them a go.

A quick update on her progress. Body work being finished. New early style horncast installed, battery panel removed to accommodate new exhaust and left side door pivots fabricated and opening for intake manifold enlarged. Will go for paint in early January.

Chassis in primer now. Painter should have color on this week. Then it can get back to Madison from Indy and I can start assembly.








Looking forward to assembly

Found out my color is closer to Verde Mela 302 than Gaillo Cromo 933 which is more yellow

This is the product and color my painter used.
It is a very close match to Max Meyer Verde Mela 302.

Finally managed to get Alice to Madison.
My neighbor had a family event in Indianapolis and brought it back for fuel costs.
Jonathan at Gickspeed wrapped everything carefully and delivered to neighbors brother.
Beginning to make progress.
Cleaned all threads and reamed bolt openings to remove excess paint.
Installed some factory style stickers.
Pulled wiring and drilled mounting and wire holes for taillight.
Anxious times drilling holes in newly painted chassis.


Mudguard installed






New fork lock in waiting for cover and rivet


Wiring pulled first try. Used electrical cable pulling wax and made up the pull wire with a piece of icemaker plastic tubing over the wire.

Coming together well. Need to fit the headset cables and wiring then it can come off of the bench and have the motor installed.

This thing looks great.. and I'm really curious about the choice of color. I love it, but I wouldn't expect it to be the top choice for many! Its unique and looks great.

swiss. Since I have a 64 original paint smalldoor that I bought from V oodoo I wanted something really different. I saw this color on vespafarben https://www.vespafarben.de/suchfilter/verde-mela-302/
And thought it was just right for the project.
It had been a long time since I built anything from scratch so the project took on a life of its own.

A friend came over yesterday and helping me get her off of the work table and on the floor. Motor goes in this afternoon then a day to get final wiring, cabling and furl line fitted.
Should be a runner by mid week.
