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.
