    Default Restoration project

    It has been a while since I have been in here, but I thought I would post this here because I know there are a few "tractorbynet'ers" that would probably enjoy this project I have been working on. It is a restoration project I am working on. Each video will be uploaded weekly showing the entire process from digging the project out of a barn to the finished product. I am calling the project "Barn Fresh" and I am sure most people here are familiar with that term. Here is the website where all the videos will be located. Barn Fresh restoration - Motorcycle How to and Repair Check back often for the next video and more pictures "behind the scenes" info. Enjoy!

    And here is the page for the first video.

    I will get to the triples in time. Keep watching Episode 2 will be up in the next few days and every episode will be uploaded weekly. I already restored one of the triples many years ago. Here is an old pic from when I was in high school.

    Very nice. My fist experience with a 500 triple was a friend of mine's back in the lat 70s. Man, that thing flew (in a straight line only). It sold me on two-stroke street bikes. I ended up with a Yamaha RD400. Screaming little bike.

    Looking forward to your projects. Thanks for the documentation.

    Interesting project. First 4 motor cycles were Kawasakis. G5(?) 100cc '75 175 '71 H1, and '80 1000 shaft. H1 was the most abused, had carb issues, homemade points system that wouldn't hold settings. Took a while to sort that one out.
