If anyone is contemplating getting a SAMRAT tappet cover, do it!The finish is extremely high quality and it seals perfectly, coupled with a half wingnut it looks superb!
That looks great! But does it fit the EFI motor?
I rode to work today. In the rain. It was a fun ride.
Also I built a new luggage rack for the bike. I want to be able to start camping with the Blackhawk and strapping gear to a curved fender doesn't work worth a crap. So I welded up and painted this guy today.
And yeah yeah yeah. I know my crappy seat cover is falling apart. I got a number from a local DJ/Hot Rodder for an upholster, and I've called him 3 or 4 times but no return call.
I was planning on changing the fork springs too, but when I compared the old to the new they didn't match. The new springs were a 1/2" shorter than the original springs, 20.75" on the new compared to 21.25" on the old, so I just put the old springs in back in there. I also completely flushed out every component of the fork assembly with brake cleaner and compressed air. It was kind of gross, 56 years worth of sludge. A good part in the bottom of each fork leg didn't even want to come out and took a lot of I refilled the the forks with 8 ounces of ATF fluid in each leg. Now I just need to get some new rear shocks.
