Initial Cleaning 6 (end of the day)
The shift lever was the last item to be cleaned today. The linkage (not shown) also needed a bunch of cleaning.
The finished shift lever turned out well. It's funny to look at the construction of these old bikes. The welds on these old parts is actually pretty bad there is a lot of weld splatter on the weld joints and would not be acceptable on modern bikes.
The installed linkage looks pretty good. I also cleaned up the large nut in the picture that holds an exhaust bracket.
One of the next projects will be to remove the case covers and put them on the buffing wheel.
