    Some more Pics

    Frame is straight and painted. I cleaned up and rebuilt the carbs. I got the head replaced. Found a bent U-joint that is on the way. Hope to start putting it back together. Cant decide how to finish the cases. I kinda like the old clean look. Bead blasting is so hard to keep clean. Im gonna try the diesel Tide mix I found in an another thread.

    Walnut shells in a vibrarory bowl polished up the carbs pretty nice.

    Nice work and great project. I'm just getting back into airheads after a 20 year absence. I can really appreciate taking something bent and making it right again. Keep the pics coming!
