Right Side cyclinder head


Finally got around to doing this, didn't take too long. Most of the afternoon so not too bad.
Still gotta get things put back on like the radiator and carbs ect.

Pictures of the goldwing in the almost finished state

Here's some pictures of the goldwing...almost finished except now it needs a new right cylinder housing since the old one has decided to keep cracking at the bolt hole.

Another Project

Well it seems I've acquired another project...not sure what keeps getting into me :)

Anyway, it's a '76 Honda CB750 SS.
It's pretty much ugly as can be, the yellow really doesn't do it any justice.

The good news is it's coming apart easily, managed to pull the rotting rear tire off, brakes since those had locked up and the seat, and tank.

Makes it look much better without the really cruddy parts so far.
To test out if the wiring harness might be able to be saved my buddy swung by with a fresh battery and we hooked it up and 'WOW' no fire nothing blew up, the lights actually worked.
That was amazing.

Now it's time to plan the rebuild, and start getting parts in and things ready for powder coating.

Well that didn't work

Yeah the fix on the engine block didn't hold worth a lick.
Just kept cracking and breaking as I tried to fix it a few times.
Solution: EBAY picked up the right side cylinder head block for 20 bucks. Cheap...just gotta pull the old one off.
