I would expect the back.Phil
You're getting on at quite a pace. Mine is still on the bench with no progress since I had my accident and broke my arm at the begginning of September.
Ah... the frame is more "silvery"Is it powder coated as well?
Beautiful jobCan you please explain this pictureI don't recall seeing these inserts when I pulled mine apartAlso what steps do you take in getting the alloy parts to look so pristineThanks for the great pictorialRoy
I deleted my double post, sorry about that, my Mac has a mind of it's own.Thanks for the tube explanation, I must have them in one of the boxes, I'm pretty sure my 72 had never been apart before me, or could it be they were added to later models, I will look at the bearings to see if they are drilled for them.Now I remember, you told me once before about the Aluminium brightener, I will pay a visit to NAPA
Where did you get the brass looking transmission oil filler bolt?
Probably the original, minus the chrome plating.
Really. I didn't know you could take the chrome layer off like that. I sandblasted a S&S chrome air filter cover before and it had a nice satin silver look, but I never got down to a brass-looking layer.
The chrome is usually flaking off the Guzzi fill/drain plugs and dipstick as used on the Eldo and V7 Sport. Probably doesn't take much effort to remove the rest. Solid brass underneath. Most of the earlier Loop plugs were brass too, but zinc plated instead of chrome. By sandblasting the S&S filter cover, you were probably down to the nickel under the chrome or perhaps the base metal (steel or aluminum?). There wouldn't have been a brass layer, but possibly a copper layer if it was "show chromed".
Your bang on Charley, the plug was an old beater from my Eldorado, I bead blasted it and then polished it up to shine. I kinda prefer the big brass look but it probably should go back on my Eldo ;)
Damn Jim, I'll say it again...NICE work. Better than new.
Thanks Cam ;)I think I should be able to find a good home for it. I want to move this V7 Sport on in the new year and get on to my 750S clone project and start to clean up the 750S3 I bought in the fall. I can't ever say I get bored.
