Waiting at the door.

I spent the morning rescheduling jury duty and the rest of a long day at work.

Today was a good day. The package arrived.

I found the refinished cylinder block, new pistons, rings, pins and clips waiting for me on the doorstep when I got home.

The parts look great. A few more pieces of the puzzle are here. I can't wait to start putting the beast back together. I have to get the quote on the valve work and get that started. I know it will take the shop some time to get to the job once I approve a quote and tell them to start the project.

There is still a lot of clean up to do on the engine before I can start bolting parts back together. Like the squirrels, I am hoping to start tightening nuts in January. (I guess squirrels don't really tighten nuts, they just eat them.)

I need to start diving into the rest of the bike. I haven't done much with the rolling frame yet. I know I need a few major parts like the stock oil tank, left side cover, front fender and stays, tachometer, cables, seat, electronic ignition, and a new wiring harness to start the list.

It would be nice to come home every day and find a box of parts waiting for me.
