Got back on the bike project again, finally....
Started wiring up at the handlebars....

Mounted the mag kill switch on the right, next to the front brake MC...
Drilled and tapped for a couple of screws for the hi-lo headlight switch on the left....


It;s gettin' kinda busy lookin' up there....

Using the old original switch box I had fabbed all those years ago...
All it had was a switch for the lights, a 20 amp fuse, and a spare fuse carrier...



Rewiring it with a new switch, a DPDT,
and a circuit breaker....



There's three holes in the front of the box, where the original switch, and the two fuse holders were, will put the new switch back in the top hole, and am thinking of glueing the old caps off the original fuse holders onto the other two holes to cover them up....

More Later....

Was traveling for awhile, back home again, so back on the wiring part of this....
Only have a little time today, but got this far....

Over the years I've developed a pretty "bullet proof" method of putting end pieces on my wires, first slide a piece of shrink tubing on the wire, then crimp that terminal on....



Then solder it....



Then finish up with the shrink tubing....



More Later....

Started with #10 wire at the 12 vdc terminal on my new gen set,
it has a built in voltage regulator, etc...


Can run this gen set with no battery and a magneto....

Ran the wire along the bottom rail, left side,
and up to the circuit breaker....


Ran a hot from the switch under the tank up to the
headlight, plus put in a ground for the front end system...


Laid the wires, the supply and the hi/lo switch, so it lays well on full right....


Yet is not too floppy on full left....


And I don't think it will flop around on straight in the wind,
if need be, I'll tie it down...


So, what yer seein there is the hi/lo and the feed and the ground wires...

Ran the mag ground wire down the other leg from the handlebar...


Put a 90 on the brake light switch, for easy access when the tranny is back in....

Hung a piece of hose to route the wires from the switch box to under the oil can....


Drilled two holes in the bottom plate under the old oil can
tool storage space (the old battery box)....


Connections here are for the tail light and the brake light...



The tail light works great w 12 volts...


This is an led bulb, this is the brake light on top of the
tail light, it is bright.....


Fired up the head light, both high and low beams were REALLY BRIGHT !!!

Then they blew, still had the 6v bulb in, unfortunately....

More Later....

Haven't really chimed in a lot on this thread, but have followed it from the beginning.

Picking parts, choosing color, front brake follies, clutch capers, curing paint on pipes, bachelor housekeeping...

Just wanted to throw a "thumbs up" to keep your spirits up while you're getting short... so much class here - don't fall into the "gotta-have-it-done" trap!

BTW, it was snowing here in Seattle three days ago. At least you don't have that problem in Hawaii!

Keep chipping @ it; you'll have it finished before long.

Hey there CarFarmer, raised 4 kids here on Maui, and two of them live in the north Seattle area, so I am back and forth a lot to that area, Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. and we had snow a couple of times on the last visit over New Years....
Most likely this bike will end up with my son in LFP...
Of course the Old Man gets to ride it when I come to visit, right ??
Have been to a couple of biker swap meets up there, over the years, have found some cool parts that way....
Messing with the Sparto tail light on this bike, want to put a long glass titty shaped lens on it, but it doesn't fit, and looking at how to do that...
Fun, it keeps me going...

Hey there Jaws,
Still gotta get the carb mounted, the fuel hose hooked up, and the brakes bled, gettin close there, will letcha know, it was a brainfart when the head light lit up and went out, "oooowww, da 6v bulb still stay in deah....
hey, one stupid haole, whut kan I say...
Aloha,
Willy

Still need to rebuild the front brake caliper...



Pulled it off and rechecked the rotor and mount...
All still looking good....



Terst fitted the brake pads, again, looking good.....



Laid out all the parts for the rebuild....



Pulled the carb off the shelf, all the ferrous metal parts are showing rust,
so will have to clean and paint them...



Laid out all the parts for this '62 Linkert M74 carb rebuild...



A closeup of these parts...



Hmmm, time to dig out the shop manual....

I hope you have a rubber ducky float for her! anything else is total garbage. I love my Link.

Bike looks amazing.. please go riding with Brandt soon, he's getting restless!

Yup, I did upgrade the float to a new "Ducky", it looks great !!



Started stripping down the carb, hmmm, 3 gaskets between the carb and the intake? Looks like a heat isolator solution somebody put in....



Actually the carb looks like it is in great shape, throttle and choke shafts look tight, not sloppy, might not have to do much to it, will check it out further...

Yeah, I had previously run an insulator and double gaskets in front of the carb to keep it cool, it worked great....

Had a rain storm come in just now, abandoned the shop, it leaks like a sieve when it rains like this, had 2.5" in about 4 hours, one downpour of at least an inch in about 10 minutes....

Had a little time today for a couple small chores, so....
I decided to wrap the exhaust pipes in
titanium exhaust wrap,
something different....



And ran a braided front brake line down to the disk brake...



more later....

The master cylinder is missing the banjo bolt for the hydraulic line to the caliper....
Tried various bolts I had until I found the correct thread....

I finally determined that the thread is a metric 10 by 1.25,
and I have not been able to find a banjo bolt of that thread locally,
so I'm going to drill out a bolt and make my own...
