Well, Finally cooled off enough to spend some time in the shop... have to wait until the wife and kiddo goes to sleep ususally if I want to get anything productive accomplished...

Stripped off cowl, Rear fender, side covers, tail light, Seat and chain guard.

Installed a new battery, still need to run some sea foam throught the fuel system and maybe adjust the carbs to compensate for the Pods...

The old seat was toast.... The foam had gotten wet trapping moisture between it and the pan... There's lots of surface stuff on the pan, but your welcome to it....

ha! love the cook sign! nice work! I'd definitely take the old seat pan off you if it's not too destroyed. any chance you got a picture the underside? does it still have the hinge brackets on it? let me know what $ you need for it - thanks
