    That's actually funny.
    Imagine if you'd spent as many hours practicing with a musical instrument as you have spent playing video games.

    Got to hand it to Chaly. He's got a wicked sense of humour.

    Wheels! And a solid-state rectifier and regulator to replace the antique stock units.

    I've got to be completely honest. I do not have the patience to do that with a bike even once.

    It doesn't look like I've done much but I've been busy. It's time-consuming rebuilding the controls, the signals, etc.
    Had to do some wiring repairs and a fair bit of work on the headlight bucket and accompanying hardware.
    Finally ready to hang the harness and get the gauges back on.
    If I quit screwing around I might have it started next week.

    The Riding Dead with Norman Reedus visits Austin. Good episode of a mediocre show.

    Almost done in spite of brutal temperatures in the shop this time of year. Shiny!

    Let's just skip to the end. Here it is! Restoration complete. Took me long enough.
