Got the outside fins on the heads polished up and put them back on the bike.  Also cleaned up the exhaust a bit (actually my white RD’s old exhaust) and put those on as well.  Even had time to put the reeds/manifolds!

More motor cleanup

Got some more motor cleanup done.  Cleaned, polish, and painted the engine side covers and cylinders.  Just have to do the same to the heads and it will look much nicer.  Also threw in the oil pump and right engine side cover!

Got the engine cases cleaned up on the 74 RD and back together.  Even have the lump back in the frame, mostly together.  Have the clutch and stator side pretty much all set.  Just have to clean up the top end and side covers and the motor will be complete!  Pics below.

Motor all apart

Got the second RD motor apart and split the cases.  It’s in very good shape and won’t take much aside from the usual gaskets and some cleaning!

Acquired a 1995 CBR600F3 today from a friend of ours.  It isn’t all together, but I want to say with the box of parts we also got with it, 99% is there.  Some stuff is broken, and we have no key, but it will all be figured out eventually.
