I'm starting to get this project underway so I'll officially start a project thread. My 1974 CT70 K3 that I've had since my young teen years in the early 80's. I haven't decided if this will be a concours or not. Probably not a 100 point job, but maybe down the road, who knows. Doing a candy repaint scares me the most and there's no budget at this time to hire it out. I want to leave my options open, but not spend a mint just yet. More pics to follow. I've already acquired the correct new OEM exhaust and muffler assembly. That will get shelved for a while. I also have a half decent set of chrome fork ears and the original turn signal stalks, all of which will also remain in storage indefinitely. I've ordered a few other parts as well. I'm starting with the OEM stuff I know might be limited or scarce in the near future. First priority is to swap out the cracked head, clean out the tank, redo the carb and lines and get this thing running. Major Damaged items include: - left and right signals/switches. I will get a new left side signal/horn, no problem. As for the right hand dimmer/run/stop switch, I have the housing, but the internals are broken off and red knob tail broken. I will look into harvesting or acquiring used parts. - chrome fork ears. I have a half decent set of chrome fork ears and the original chrome signal stalks I got with the bike back in the early 80's. They'll need polish or probably re-chrome. Lots of other minor worn or cosmetic parts to buy. Other items, many cosmetic, include: - new cables (current ones work, but are a little worn) - carb rebuild kit - throttle kit if cleaning doesn't loosen it up and new OEM '74 grips - top end rebuild and all associated parts (possible valve seat cutting) - clinder bore/piston/rings - possible full engine rebuild, this bike has a lot of miles on it - new fuel lines - tank liner - new seat (I'd be fine with a good solid pan, as my foam is good, just need the correct cover and chrome trim strip) - battery - ignition tune up kit - possible new wiring harness - various seals, gaskets and replacement screws - shock rebuilds - wheel repaint (they're decent already and might clean up fine. - frame clean-up (may eventually strip and repaint, but not ready to spray candy riviera blue just yet) - straighten the bars, and possible chrome job. - headlight bucket needs some attention, as it has a little surface rust - at least 1 turn signal chrome housing I'm lucky, most everything is there and in decent shape. Thanks to my dad for keeping it in the garage since 1984 when it was mothballed for a cracked head. Thanks in advance for the knowledge I'm about to receive. I've been on other forums for many years that don't have the friendly quality vibe this one has. I'm looking forward to this.
