    71 Roadster Motor Complete

    I finally finished the motor. It was full of grease and grime and took forever to clean and prep for paint & powder coat.

    For my high end restorations I always powder coat the blower housing, pull starter & air filter cover for durability.

    The motor was sprayed with SprayMax automotive urethane spray paint. It's great paint for motors because it's gas & oil resistant - it's pricy ($40/can) but you only need 1 can to spray the motor and it's way better than the engine paint you buy at the auto parts store.

    Fortunately I had a good motor to start with so I only had to replace all of the gaskets along with points, condenser & coil. The carb is a Tecumseh NOS service carb.

    The decals are from Blackwidow Motor Sports

    Better Late than Never....

    Well I finally finished the bike. I waited 5 months for the front fender to get chromed! I dropped it off with some other parts in early March at Barr Plating and just got it back last week. Luckily the guy that I built this bike for wasn't in a hurry.

    I took several pictures in different locations around the house. All in all it came out pretty nice - not show quality but a really nice rider.

    The bike looks very good, nice work! Where did you find the sprocket? It looks to be the same one I have on a MTD Trail Flite I am fixing up but I can't find it.
