test fitting the fork legs and found that the new bushings are looser than what i expected.

one leg is ok - the bushing had to be heated to get on, unfortunately the other was too easy to pull off and on.

these are both new fork legs and new bushings...i hope once the fork lower is on that there isnt too much play

Remember you will have oil in there,(taking up some play)
Put a quality hose clamp on them heat them up and tap on the clamp (Maybe some folded over fine emery paper between bush and clamp)

Hey Richbob - thanks for the reply. Can you explain what that will achieve? Are you thinking that will shrink the bushing closer the the fork leg?

Yeah sorry for the confusion, I believe these bushings are supposed to be a real close fit. The bottom bushing almost interference fit. So being on there tight is what you want.

Mine feel a bit too loose for my liking. Both top and bottom

I used the ratchet strap trick so i didnt need to buy or build a fork puller tool.

Rather than building each leg off the bike, and pulling through the triple clamps with a threaded tool, this method involves installing the stanchions first then all the other parts after that. Then use a ratchet strap between the lower steering clamp and the front axle to compress everything up, then tighten the chrome seal holders. Worked like a charm.

Thanks 1947Knuck

next step wheels. I painted the front hub VHT GM Rally silver wheel paint for the front and the rear with VHT high-temp caliper gloss black. Installed new bearings and got the chrome cover from a swap meet for $10.

I have new rims and spokes from Devon rim company so will start running the spokes on t he bench first, then move to the truing stand.

So photobucket can get faarkedd

i have worked out how to get some pics displayed for free using google drive - i just need to go through each one and make them public in "sharing settings".

I uploaded all the pics of this project to my (free up to 15gb) google drive, right click image & generate shareable link, (go to advanced sharing and make sure "viewable to anyone on the web" is selected, copied link into browser, right click on image and "open image in new tab" - copied that longer link and added it to the thread posts.

Thats why the pic on the first page is now visible.

Got the front wheel laced and laid the exhaust in place to see how it looks. Bloody beautiful as expected! I am glad I went for the non-balanced set, its a much cleaner look. Both the silencer and pipes are Wassell brand.

The rear was far harder to lace than the front. Mainly because I need to work out how measure the all important "offset" for the rear wheel. eg how much is it and where do i measure it from.This is a standard non-QD hub.

nice to see a standard rebuild, agree with no balance pipe on the headers, an no real after market fitting glitches; does you credit.

Finally found some time to get both wheels trued up with correct offsets - as per the manual. I also managed to install new bearings, spacers, rim tape and Dunlop K81s.



Before installing on the bike - the next step is to rebuild and repaint the front brake assembly.
