Sounds like a trip to the machine shop is in order.
Looking very good! And I like your engine stand. :)
Thanks, the factory stand is worth owning.
I had one and found that I didn't use it much, sold it last Summer.
I'm surprised that you didn't use it that much. Mine has been quite handy for this kind of work and working on the front forks.
What have you guys done to improve the looks of old calipers? These donít look too bad and I probably will vapor blast them but is there some paint treatment that will work?
I got mine Cerakoted...very nice finish that is close to original and hard wearing
Original finish was hard anodized black. I was lucky to find a local anodizing shop that does my stuff for real cheap, about $3.00 per half a caliber. I used my Vapor blaster to strip the anodized finish. If you want a shine to the finish you have to polish up the aluminum prior to anodizing. The anodized process is so thin that itís practically transparent. The Grimeca caliber I sent Charlie was Vapor blaster and anodized but no pre polishing. Factory finish was a little shinier so next time I will lightly polish the caliber castings prior to anodizing.
This is what cerakote looks like.....slightly less matt than anodising i'd say .Apparently much harder wearing and doesn't fade.I got mine done by Ducatipaddy http://www.ducatipaddy.com/ as he does this as part as part as his refurbishment ...of course you'll be able to get a local service but in France there are only a couple of people who do it and they didn't have a good record.

Iíll see what the local guy has in terms of the finish. Thanks for posting this link.
A light touch with a file might be all it needs, may be a small but stopping it sliding.Painted end on UJ towards gearbox. Can't tell by photo, but install it in the swing arm first, will likely need to freeze it and make up some guides/supports to knock in to carrier bearing.
Definitely get rid of the rust. Some naval jelly would be an easy option.
Looks great! I've got my velocity stacks but going to run some filters for longevity. Your paint looks great. Seems like there was a mix of chrome and black handlebars.
