If I don't sell mine. I'm going to replace both the spark plugs and the air filter. I will also be adjusting the clutch and throttle cables. I'm sure there are things that need to be done as well.

Wish list include:

Woodcraft rearsets
powder coat rear passenger pegs
Puig smoke windscreen
Dynojet

Probably going to put some new brake pads on my CBR, maybe put new brake fluid in. I might get an aftermarket silencer for the bike too.

I am going to be restoring my BSA A-10/Triumph with my dad... and cleaning up my Norton to sell it next year.

Is the A-10 a 650cc motor? Those make great motor's for rat choppers.

Not much being it is new. I am looking at Frame sliders, a Yoshi exhaust and then a brake in service of some sort.

Yes, it's the 650 pre-unit engine. I have seen a few bobbers that I liked made out of A-10's.. although I really hate bobbers/choppers.

But I have decided not to use the A10 engine as I'm building a cafe racer and want a Triumph engine... actually I had already bought all the parts needed to rebuild the A10 engine.. but recently I don't think I want to mess around with the magneto and generator. Plus, in stock form the A10 engine is not as strong as a unit triumph twin.

take it apart, figure out what's bent, fix it, change the oil, brake fluid, put on new tires, new midpipe, and then stare out the window wondering when it's gonna get warm again

I have to get a new wind screen. This summer I cleaned the bugs off mine with a kitchen sponge (the soft side, NOT the scouring side) but it still swirl-marked the shit out of it. Can't even see through it anymore. :(

With finances being pretty tight, bike expenditures are going to go for a new rear tire. Otherwise just regular maintenance, fiddle with the carbs, flush the brakes... thankfully bikes are mostly easy and inexpensive to maintain.

I was planning on new tires, but that will be a bitch finding a smaller front tire that i want.

Chain and sprockets, fix my fan, an oil change towards the beginning of the year once it get's warm, and fix the real noticable damage done to my bike from the previous fuck face who beat the shit out of it.

BTW, could anyone recommend a chain and sprocket for me? I have NO idea what to look for and what is good and what isn't. :(

Both will get gorilla alarms with pagers. One will get new tires and rear integrated brake/turn signal LED. Both will also have all fluids changed, air filters and of course will do chain maintenance. I ride year around though but just wait for the bone cold days and do a little work each time.
