Well, the shocks arrived and are installed… these RFY shocks are Chinese look-a-likes of classic Ohlins or Penske shocks. Obviously not the same quality as Ohlins but not bad. This guy has taken them apart and looked them over and they really are pretty good for the money- about 100.00/set on ebay. Note that you will need to do some shimming and/or drilling to get the top and lower mounts to fit properly even though the vendor claims they will bolt right on. They won’t.

The rear wheel had new bearings installed and everything was cleaned and re-greased. The front bearings were fine and the speedo drive was cleaned and re-greased as well. It is coming along- hopefully, the engine will be installed next week!
