65 CA77 305 Texas Rebuild

Post by Onemilewest » Tue Aug 14, 2007 12:36 am

Let me start by saying that this is a project that I have been wanting to do for a while. Second; if anyone lives in the DFW area, speak up. I supply the beer and the BBQ for those who can come by and "visit" days.

I brought it home and was ready to go. Then, I opened the gas tank... below is what it looked like when I brought it home. The second is off to sandblast and powder coat. I bought my own powder coater and oven, but can't fit the frame and front forks. I will do everything else.

I will post more detail later, but its late.

My first question: Anyone want to sell me a spare front fender? the front can be trashed if you have one. I can cut and tig the back flap. I will send a picture of it later.

I have a fender or two. Not perfect but can be made that way. Who did you get to do your powder coat and how did it end up?

Sorry for the delayed response. I have been working many hours lately. I used a place in Denton called cross link powder coating. He is fast, priced very reasonable and the quality was outstanding. I ended up taking a few other items to him. I had the rims coated fire engine red. I did the spokes black and the hubs aluminum silver. I will put white wall tires on them. I will take a few pics and post shortly.


I have a question on the rear shocks. I took them apart, cleaned them up and powder coated the covers. I continue to screw them up time and time again trying to put them back together. I have sand blasted and powder coated 3 times and I am about to snap. Any advice on re-assembly tips???

One last question about the threads on these things. These are JIS, correct? Well in my haste to powder coat, I coated some of the holes. Where can I get a tap and die set for this thread standard?

Oilleak, my email is onemilewest@hotmail.com. I would like to stop by and look at those fenders. Let me know and I can ride over.

Onemile, sent an email reply. I haven't had my shocks apart yet, but I know others here have. Thanks for the info on the powder coater. I use one in Dallas. Anxious to see pics of your bike.
