A day in the garage and some minor T250 updates

It’s been a while since I posted anything here so I figured it was about time to upload some images and write a few words. I haven’t had the time or energy to work in the garage in a while so the progress on the T250 has been slow but now a few things have been done.
I have coated the exhausts with heat resistant black paint to keep the rust from eating them up. I had to hammer out a small “tail” on the rear fender to keep it from getting stuck in the tire if the shocks bottom out, there was also need of some grinding on the front fender to give it some clearance from the front tire. The tanks and the rear of the bike have been base coated and sprayed with a filler, hopefully I will be able to do the final sanding and get some new base coat on them the next time I am in the garage. Almost all the wiring is done except the light switch and I sure hope I got it all right. The seat is almost finished with just some small tweaks and some more glue to be applied.

It was a rather pleasant day in the Piston Cult Garage and fellow cultists Tim, Casper and Elias were also there. Tim was polishing the brains out of his Honda CB500 engine, he even cleaned the underneath the engine with a toothbrush!

 

 

Casper was mounting the cylinder head on his Triumph and it sure wasn’t the easiest thing in the world. But after a lot of if and buts I think we managed to get it all mounted the right way.

 

 

 

 

Elias did some tube bending to fabricate a new passenger seat for his Harley.

 

Well I guess that’s all for now, I will try to post stuff more often from now on and there will also be some new contributors to this blog pretty soon.
