Default Re: Paint Job Progress

Just finished mounting motor today. Don't have pics yet with motor on. I tried some liquid gasket stuff named Three-bond. Worked on everything except the cylinder. After about a 5-mile ride it was just starting to ooze around the base. But I don't think this motor was made to work without a cylinder gasket. There's a slight "ridge" going around in the middle of the mating surface. Worked good on crankcase cover which is just a flat-to-flat surface contact. So I cut a gasket (hate cutting gaskets) and used a little threebond as well.

Anyway, here's pics of the bike sans-motor. Sorry for the messy background. There's a closeup of my homemade, hand-bent aluminum kickstand. The motor all cleaned up. And that gasket stuff (I think I'll recommend it).

Will post better pics with motor when I get them. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice and sunny - outside pics with no basement junk.
