XS650 Engine Gasket
Got a new Engine Gasket Kit. Time to rebuild the engine. Debating whether to do it on my own, which I am fully confident that I can do, but not fully confident I will be able to make proper diagnosis in case there are any bad parts. Also got in the Front Wheel Bearing and Seal Kit that drastically improves the handling and sterring of the older bikes.

Harley Davidson Headlight
I also got in this sweet headlight. I am not a fan of the obnoxiously huge lights many guys run, wanted something small. Was hoping this would be metal but it is ABS, some day down the road I will replace it with a full metal headlight cup so that I can leave it bare metal, not a fan of chrome, or else I would have bought and over-priced Darley Havidson. 


This light was ship from Thailand so it had some cool packaging and stamps and packaged with twine. Pretty interesting.

So went down to Bob's Used Motorcycle Parts again and when I got there started losing sight in my left eye. Typical sign of a migraine coming, sure enough it was. Trying to find parts when you can only see about 25% out of one eye is difficult. I am sure I looked a little clumsy out there. I was able to score a near perfect front caliper, as well as a much better conditioned alternator cover and clean operating kicker that I will hopefully mount an old school brass pedal on.

This picture was parts fresh out of the bag. I immediately took the caliper apart and cleaned every part with detail and ordered a kit for it that should be here later this week which will make it as good as new! The caliper has a nice natural aluminum finish that is slightly purplish discoloration, it will look great that way.
