I hope this works. First, I have to thank Wingman and everyone on this board that helped, I could not have done it without you (ask my wife, lol). This is the first major repair I have ever done.

What was done...
- Replacing left hand controls (turn signal/cb,radio)
- Paint all the dark vinyl
- Install rear speakers (the wires on the fader busted, so I have to order another fader harness)
- standardized all misc bolts from the goofy misc screws that were in the bike to standard american phillips
- lubed speedo cable
- LED lights on the instrument panel

I still have to get some plastic pieces, replace the brake pedal (there is an elevated pedal on there and I want to take that off and get low-boy floor boards with the heel-toe controls on both sides) and do some other "little" things....but here you go....

Mag, looks and sounds great! Now if the weatherman will cooperate with us we can ride! Maybe make a ride over to the coast or someplace pretty. Found a few wingmen to ride with down this way, so gonna pick some bugs out of the teeth pretty soon!

I know, she is still sitting in the garage....my wife said she needs more wine for dinner, so I may go for a quick one to the store before the rains hit again. 1/4 inch yesterday (not counting the hail) and 3/4 inch the day before....we will have to see what happens. All I know is the bike will be rolling as soon as we can.

We are in the "bummer" of the northwest, Apr/May should be nice (I hope, I hope, I hope)
