* Put on a new (to me) stator cover (that wasn't scratched all to hell like my other one was).

* Took off the fairning brackets. (waiting for my new handlebars, levers, mirrors, headlight brackets and dominator headlight)  :thumb:

I'm picking up the new oil pan gasket so I can finish the engine rebuild, and I"m starting to build a set of rear pegs out of steel tubing because the guy before me removed the mounts by cutting them off.

FINALLY got some bar end mirrors, put them on today, love them. I'll get to use them on the way to work and see how well they serve their primary purpose, but they look much better than the stock "antenna" mirrors, and really compliment the clip ons.

Also have new spark plugs about to go in.....

I will this evening.  I'm still waiting for a sprocket carrier and axle before I can get it all together.

I let it take my @ss to work so I can afford to put more fuel in her, so we can go on trips together  :thumb:
Besides I got her inspected today.
