Padded the frame with pipe insulation to protect it from scratches when I install the engine. I wanted to try to use PVC shower curtain rod covers...the kind that are split lengthwise and you just snap around the rod. I've heard those work very well in protecting the lower frame rail...and are thin enough not to get in the way during assembly. Alas, I couldn't find any store that carries them in my area. So, I'm using pipe insulation. We'll see how it goes.

Removed breather, carbs, and distributor cap and wires from the engine to provide more clearance when installing the engine.

Remove the forks to (a) lighten the frame during engine install and (b) prepare the shrouds for clear coating.
