Re: 76 750ss wheel hub finish

I thought about anodizing the hubs, didn't know about the darkening though. Sure would save a lot of work.
I don't think I could do it my borranis though, well, borrani really, I'm pretty sure the front is beyond help.

Re: 76 750ss wheel hub finish

Ok, thanks wdietz, that makes it easy then. You don't happen to know of any way of keeping the freshly bead blasted alloy looking fresh do you?
I don't want to go too overboard but the longer I can keep the corrosion away the better.

Re: 860Gt intake port flash - anybody seen this?

Disappointing for sure, interesting that in all that time it's never given you any trouble.
Even more interested to see if you can detect any difference when you get it back together, tuning, seat of the pants, etc.

76 750ss wheel hub finish

Can anyone tell me what is polished besides the wheel rim & centre of the hub? It might seem a bit tedious but my wheels are in such bad state that it's hard to tell. Photos included for interest, I'm pretty happy with the way they've come up so far. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Uyh9XPHwHNFzn_5_...

Re: GTS starter system weak areas?

The excessive current draw could possibly be from the resistance of the cheap jumper leads, those things are usually crap with bad connections and cable that's to small.

Re: barn find

Thanks for your interest, I'm in north Queensland and although I haven't got my hands on it yet, the owner has indicated he will sell it to me but the deal is through a third party and is dragging out, when (hopefully) I take ownership I'll definately post some pics. Its been down hard on the right ...

Hi my names Richard, I'm from Australia and I'm in the process of buying a '76 750ss wreck for restoration. The bike is in pretty bad shape and has sat for over 20 years, alot of parts broken, some missing, so a lot to do.....
