Here are some pics. of the beginning works of my 1986 sei project bike.Have begun the detailing,
and have tested starter by bypassing and all's good there. Motor spun great after letting MMO
sitting in cylinders a week. Fuel pump tested and working. Checked Trans in 1st gear and hand spun motor and rear wheel turned, put back in neutral and spun again and rear wheel didn't move so all seems good there. Have almost completed detailing from front of gas tank back. No gasket
between rear swing arm and final drive which is why I believe oil and grease has coated the swingarm. Tested removing rust from exhaust by using aluminum foil dipped in water and rubbing
which easily removed and cleaned up rust as the pictures show. Once I complete all cleaning I
will start replacing many parts starting from the rear and working my way forward. Gas tank was full
and inside looks great. Removed radiator and anti-freeze looked brand new. I am feeling confident
in bringing this baby back to life. Have ordered a few parts to begin and will purchase as this project moves forward. Bottom line is I will do whatever it takes to restore her. This is one great FORUM with some great people and have learned so much in the last 2 months. Will keep updated as I move
forward... Thanks for looking.
