Vitch Update for Sunday

July 22nd, 2012 (06:12 pm)

Arrived: 

  • Seat cover

Ordered and due:

  • Clutch cable

Newly ordered:

  • Front brake cable
  • Turn signals, front and rear

Legally, I don’t really need turn signals as this model was manufactured without them prior to 1973. But I’d feel better having them and it would make it easier to pass inspection, instead of having to get the inspector to trot out the manual.

Wish list:

  • Fuel emergency shutoff
  • Ignition emergency shutoff
  • Center stand (strongly suspect mine is not actually compatible)
  • Side stand (ditto)
  • Topcase with brake and turn signals
  • Paint job
  • Original decals

I’d also like a closer look at the original brake pedal vs. what I’ve got. I suspect another incompatibility. What I suspect is a bit of Frankenstein going on.
