Bike Rehab Episode 2

Just a quick before and after of the right-side mirror. I hand-polished it using some Mothers polish. Just wanted to see how effective it’d be against some of the more severe pitting.


Actually worked pretty well for ten minutes work!


Now that I have my multimeter, I figured I’d also look at the charging system a bit. I know the battery has to be totally dead, but hey.

Well, step one is to fill any low cells with distilled water. So, I needed to pull the battery. On this bike. that means removing a couple of big ole frame bolts. Turns out one of them was cross-threaded. Instead of loosening, it snapped.


Well, the battery is confirmed dead, and I need new fuel lines and the pesky bolt and nut.

Time to start a shopping list…
