    Got the brakes installed for the first time since this journey began, excited to try them out.

    We have had some success with the exhaust fastener issue. We took the threaded nuts, put them flat on the anvil of the bench vice and hit them with a 4 pound shop maul. The idea is to only deform them a bit, just a bit. Enough to resist turning, but not enough to deform the studs. Practice with some throw-aways first. Or buy two of the pre-dimpled nuts from the hardwre store pull-out trays. I forget what they’ve called.
    Hope this helps,
    Steve

    Don’t mind the wiring mess. This is just to make sure everything works. Push button start!

    Saddle Bags and Seat installed. Besides cleaning up some wiring, I'm willing to say this project is done!
