Beautiful job! Looks better than new! It will pull like a freight train and shut off at about 6000/6200 rpm.

Thank you all ! :up:

This was the second 'J' in my queue and so now I'm looking at starting the third one. 'The Plan' is to have the third one completed sometime in 2018, but we will see how it goes. The best part on it is the air box, so again, the starting point is basically a wreck. :?

Here is how it looks currently. :D

As always, you will be able to follow along on my web site. The direct link to the 'Big Blue' J rebuild will be at this link. 8)

Ian, You clearly have no fear in relation to the rebuild process - given the look of the blue bike :shock: Always great to see the "before" shots so one can really appreciate the outcome!
