T100C 69 Desert Sled Restoration...nearly there

Been working on the T100c for about 6 months. I only have weekends and I have been slowed down but the purchase of a Honda 350sl. I am also now to wondering whether I should have left it more in it's original condition...When I pulled the engine down I discovered a fair amount of work. Polished and ported heads etc...Anyway here's some pics.

the healight

Spent an hour or so knocking the dents out of the headlight and now it's back from the chromer. And the home made soda blaster worked wonders on the front hub.

Looking good John. The exhaust is interesting, are you going to reuse it?

I'm working on the same model bike -

No, dont think I'll use them. I ordered a new set of pipes and the original exhausts from a company in the UK ^ months ago...they still havent arrived. I have called them several times and it I get nothing but ******** from them. "The chrome wasn't good had to rechrome them, We've had problems with customs this end, Im on holiday I'll send a tracking number when I get back. Oh, we don't use tracking numbers." Terrible!!!

I know of a fully restored 67 t100 available for $3500, looking at your bike makes me want to make the move.
