Thanks for the offer, Chad.  I have some flat material here that's probably similar here.. The ? is more about how I configure and attach the seal.  The original seal/gasket is somewhat fancy.  The repro caps appear to use a metal retainer (probably with rivets) to hold a flat gasket in place, which is probably how I'll do mine. 

I've also got some new muscadine wine here, so expect we can come to an appropriate arrangement.....

Still havent got that in the mail, Clint. I had some manilla envelopes around here somewhere... cant seem to find them. Will depart soon, good thing this is a long-term project. FYI the material is Buna-N (Nitrile) sheet at 1/8" thick IIRC

It should mosey down there in the next week or so, maybe it will beat Santa to your hose! And yeah, I am always down for some muscadine wine!

No time for any Guzzi progress lately, but I wanted to post a couple of quick updates-

1.  I wanted to post a big thank you to the Mayor for his generous donation of Buna-N to the project & the gas cap gasket effort.  Your muscadine wine awaits.

2. I was pleasantly surprised yesterday to learn that I (or at least some guy with almost the same name as me- I'm the II, not the III...) have been awarded Metal Shaper of the Month over on the AllMetalShaping forum for the metal shaping portions of this ongoing bike build!!  Very cool- sure didn't see that coming. 





Looking forward to getting caught up some around here so I can get back into the project.   Lawn mowing season is about to begin and that always complicates fun time in the shop.
