Yes, makes it so much easier when parts are laid out to see if anything is missing. Just received the exhaust in the mail yesterday. The last big purchase is the fenders.

JD, I've been using Billmark plating in Texas. Prices are pretty good and the quality it's great.

I finally got the engine together last night thanks to Dave Madigan and his adjustable Let's. Also got the front wheel complete and re day to install, pics to follow.

We're getting closer now, also received my paint from Don Hutchinson so got get that done too, hoping to have this complete to make the trip with men to the OVBSAOC rally in August.

Finally got the engine installed in the frame along with mounting the rear fender and tail light. Slowly coming along. Hoping to have the paint work completed this week as well.

Finally finished the paint work! Turned out really great and the Spring Gold looks fantastic. Totally different comparing the new shiny paint to the original sun faded Spring
Gold paint on my 70' TR6R.

Cant wait to get these mounted.

Thanks, I haven't even wet sanded/ buffed the clear but I think I will leave it as is. There is basically no orange peel, I really do love how the Dupont Chroma system paint lays out.

Great job on the paint. I just finished painting mine this morning. I used paint from Don Hutchinson. Used Shopline clear coat. I like the way both lay out. I will sand and polish. I found a guy who does hand striping so he will add the gold stripe. Would like to see pics of the Tiger 650 decal placement if you don't mind. I am thinking mylar transfer.

I like the way the gold shows through in strong light.

Classy classic.

Actually only the second time I painted a tank. I painted this the wrong color first time around. Yes, the wrong color. I have learned with my limited experience not to be afraid of laying on a good dose of paint and clear coat. I think I was always afraid of putting on too much paint.

Wally,

Your paint job looks great, here's a photo of my tank post clear coat showing the Trophy 650 placement. It is a bit hard to see on the Spring Gold colour with the decal being gold as well but it is placed just next to the gold pin-striping centered on the center line of the fuel filler hole. I opted to have the decals and pin-striping under the clear coat as this will be a rider so I wanted them to be a bit more protected from the elements.

Almost there, just a few more things to wrap up and hoping my last bit of chrome parts arrive from the plater this week. Really trying hard bring this with me next week to the Aug. OVBSAOC meet.

p.s, dont mind the unorganized shop at the moment. Too many things going on at the same time.

Wally, The gold pin stripe is roughly 1/8" wide.

Had my guy add the gold pin stripe. Everything is basically together. Need to get it started today and put on a few miles. Don't want to hijack your restoration thread but I will post some pics of the completed bike.

Would love to see your wiring diagram and hear of your experience re-wiring. I have my 70 TR6C torn down and am debating whether to buy a NOS wiring harness or wire it myself from scratch. I have committed to Pazon ignition, Podtronics voltage regulation and want to go with negative ground so the darn thing will work.

Well last night was the night, mounted up the front fender and did a double check on the wiring, mounted the tank and seat for the last time and added fuel. Fired in the 2nd kick and sounds great. Couple little things need some work, the exhaust tappet block screw needs a better sealing washer as oil started to leak around the screw. As soon as I get this leak fixed I can get her on the street for seating of the rings. Always a great feeling to bring on of these fine machines back to life!

Here's some photos of the completed restoration (minus the knee pads for the fuel tank). Still shaking out the bugs but such a fun bike to ride!
