Hi Folks, been riding my 76 LTD for a couple of years now, after a mechanical going over when I got it.
Found out the head gaskets and water pump were leaking, original panels looked good, except for some covered over scuffing and gouging. The gas tank was replaced with a new one by the PO, but they used a spray can paint with no primer, that was rough in places. Also had some really big dents in the frame from a jammer. So I decided to bring this one back. Stripped her down, had my welder buddy repair the frame, then fill to prepare for powder coat. I took the engine down to the short block assembly, cleaned and painted engine parts with dupli-color ceramic paint. Replaced all gaskets and seals. Installed new water pump, belts, and rollers.

. I have sent the panels out to my auto body guy to have him wet sand and clear coat. He's really good at this stuff and he does motorcycle stuff regularly. This ones real early, #52, so I'm trying to do a good job on it. Another ten years from now, I'll have to put a trike kit on it.
