Getting frame ready to paint and the last item was to remove the swingarm. Of course the the swingarm pivot was rusted to silentbloc bushings. After several failed attempts, I decided to melt rubber with a torch and remove the inner parts. Then used a sawzall and carefully cut the outer bush , allowing me to split it and remove. Now to find a good set of silentbloc bushings.
I have what I always thought was a 65 Lightning Rocket (rolling basket case) until recently based on the frame number A50B 8399 and the tank that came with it that looks just like the one you had chromed.
I asked the VMCC what I had and found that my frame started life as a 65 Spitfire Hornet. I may still restore it back to LR trim. The engine is non matching and it will never be "correct" regardless.
I would have given you the correct tail light setup, if you had put out a request; I have a spare on the shelf that I bought knowing I wouldn't need it as I no longer have anything older than '66. I couldn't help myself, it just looks so cool it could be a decoration.
Looking like a great project, keep it up.
