The old front fender was not wide enough to fit the rear wheel.
What to do?

Split it

And weld a split piece of 1 inch tube in the middle

Sooooo....
We got a little more done.
It was kinda a picture poor couple days....
but here we go...

the engine had a hole in the #2 piston
Image

so we took it apart.
Image

Image

the new gasket set came with valve stem seals so we lapped the valves and put the new seals on the valves.
Image

Juan was on a budget but came with a wheelbarrow full of spare parts.
Image

So we took a few engines apart to find enough good parts to make one runner.
Image

Image

It was allot easier then I thought to do the rebuild. Timing the cam was kinda a pain it the a$$, but other then that it went well.
Image

A quick carb rebuild and once again back to the parts engines to make 3 sets of junk carbies into 1 set of good....
Image

Image

Back in the bike.
Image

some oil.
Image

some petrol
Image

and away we go.

And I forgot about poor Fast Freddy....

Image

He was supper for a couple coyotes about a week after we got back home from the Mega Ride.....

RIP Mr. Rooster.
