I agree with Elffors, some bikes have a safety switch so that you have to pull the clutch lever before the starter will turn.

That makes perfect sense !

My wife's car is like that, step on the clutch, and the starter will work....

I'm finally back working on this bike.
I had a bad industrial accident last year, severely cut my left hand, severed some tendons, it's been a long recovery. Plus some of my 4 wheel rigs have been giving me nightmares, taking time I hadn't planned on giving them.

But finally got back on the '62, working the Denver's frame for final paint...


And prepping the tank and rear fender for some clear coat...


Will post more pix...
It feels good to get back on this project....

Got a lot of family visiting right now, taking a lot of time, but it is enjoyable time, I wouldn't miss it for the world...
but got some time in on the bike today, fitting up parts and finding where I have to do a little more work off on the side to get 'er together...
but came up with this:

Aloha,
Willy

Wish I could do some tasteful black and gold pinstriping though, just a little bit here and there...

Got some parts cleaned up yesterday, gook and rust removed, and painted.
One was the tranny plate, had a little bit of time today, so snuck out to the shop and put the tranny in...

Don't like these bolts, so will get some new grade 8's and replace them....

Actually, the front ones are slightly too short, and do not fully engage the nylock nuts, interesting, as they did in the stock frame, so this Denver Mullins frame must use thicker stock for that front mounting flange. The local store did not have nylocks in the 3/8" fine (SAE) thread, which is what I want to use, and what the oem used. So I got longer grade 8 SAE bolts with grade 8 SAE hex nuts, and some SAE jam nuts to put on top of them. Will show pix when I change 'em...

Started working on the rear brake, all looks good, it was in good shape, was working just fine when I shut the bike down in 1990. I just got a rebuild kit from the local Napa store for this size cylinder, includes rubber cups, end covers, and a new spring. The old pistons are in good condition....


The wheel cylinder was a little rough looking inside, so got my small brake hone and cleaned 'er up...

Wish my insides looked this good !!

Put the rear brake parts together with the rebuilt wheel cylinder...

These are the same parts that were in the bike when I last rode it...
The parts to mount it in the frame needed some scrubbing and fresh paint...
Waiting for the paint to dry...
Willy

When I first put the Denver's Frame on the ground with the long narrowed glide it felt so right with my buddies pushing me around in front of the shop, that I just had to complete this project...
Basically just swapping out the frame and the gas tank, the rest is what I first did back in the late 60's...

More Pix Soon...
