A little more progress as I got the gas tank into the frame with no major scrapes or really any issues. WD40 is your friend on the rubber bits, as it makes for a slippery surface. I was able to get the carbs, shocks, battery box and associated wiring plus the rear end drive unit and C clip on the drive shaft in place relatively easily. I have just received new tires, so the next trip will be to get these mounted and balanced and install the exhaust system.
Spring has been MIA around here for all of April with very few days above 10C, so shooting some clear coat to refinish the body panels will have to wait a little longer. I should be able fire the bike up again at some point next week, if everything continues on pace.
