This is how the bike sit's today. I wasn't to sure what to do with it, as far as a resto or what. It doesn't look to bad from a few feet away. I have had a little chit chat with a few of you. I do agree, the proper seat is in order.

Part of my problem in this next photo of the top tube and seat...

The top tube needs to be longer for the proper style seat. Not a proplem to extend it, or fab a seat.
The yellow plastic strips on the seat mast, were teflon strips originally. A replacement in teflon or delrin should be no problem. They were epoxied to the seat mast in this next photo. Maybe look for a shock boot, and the Arnaco needs a little cleaning up.

Rear broken spoke and the rim has a big ol hoop-dee in it. I think these are some of the first Moto Mags

The top plate for the handle bars used to break. This one has been modified with a 1/8" steel under the Yamaha stamping. You can kinda see the welds.

The lower forks flexed bad, we even had a hard time with the fork tubes in the lower triple clamps. Check the hardend allen heads. I did run the oil and spring tubes on both sides.

The head angle on this front half seemed a little slower and the bearing cup flared out the head tube on the bottom from it. JP jumped off Catus Park at Bay st in SM with this one. He also did the head tube repair.

So, do I just extend the top tube, rattle can some ford blue on it, fab up a seat, some teflon strips and call it good...with a good cleaning and buffing of course
or fix the frame, seat, teflon strips, sand blast the frame, paint it and make the chrome on the forks nice and the legs, powder coat the bars, look for grips. I was going to try to get a preston petty plate either way, maybe some fork boots ( the originals are chewed) and freshen up the mags and tires.
The bike was complete and original except for the cranks, pedals, sprocket and number plate as shown. It is the same bike in the Bob Osborne poster except for the front frame, seat and parts mentioned above.
I wanted to paint it orange and make another front half to re create the old front half with holes, along with a seat. THEN...
Mel S. or hunstouse ( or just STOUSE ) has been posting some old photo's he has and some of them with the mono as it sits. After talking with sodbusta and stouse's photo's (now that it's documented) I'm leaning towards leaving it in it's last version, just how far to go...
I would think a survivor type bike might be a little nicer then this? I don't know, you guys collect and restore so tell me what you think...
Posted 4 Jun 2007OK, so melvin a.k.a. STOUSE sends me this e mail NINK! and it just brought a smile to my face. He seen that my panties were in a wad about something stupid...so NINK!
Back in the day, if you surfed and skated you might hang out and jeff ho's aka the zephyer surf shop. If you were into MX you might hang out at Kiel's Cycle Parts...
So a Kielism was NINK! it was when you did somthing stupid Mark Kiel would go NINK, or when you seen something stupid, or maybe someone stupid was coming NINK!
It put a smile on my face and made think of how stupid things can be...a saying from back in the day.
So what was your favorite word or saying from ripping it up back in the day?
Oh and STOUSE thanks for showing up here and the e mail, NINK!
