Finally....aspy's going back together

Postby deanbw » Sun May 03, 2015 1:20 am



So somewhere around the middle of November 2014 I bought the aspy. Just a little clean here, a little paint there, maybe polish that......sounded so easy.
Most of you know things didn't work out that way, I have a little OCD problem that won't let a clean part be next to a dirty one.
I hope to beat this problem someday.....oh god what a life that would be.
So, the front end has been on for a week or two, (some of you saw my front tire problem, along with all my other posts about this "clean up").
Today I finally put the heart back in the mighty toad.
Still have plenty to do but man does it feel good to be putting the big parts back on.




Here it is with it's older brother, it came along a couple weeks ago with 18000mls, last license 82, so now there is a '76 and '86 I guess next is a '96 then? crap.... will this ever end?

Thank you CM, It will be nice to ride the thing, I've only ridden it about 10 feet into the garage when I got it then decided to "clean it up"
