Well I have the bike back together! Doesn’t look half bad either in my opinion. Now I have to take it back apart. I’ve discovered the steering bearings are bad. With the bike off the ground the “indexing” is very apparent, and the steering feels heavy and odd while riding. I also have to figure out why it lobes when starting cold and choke on. Once warm it is nice runner. Also the charging system isn’t working properly-in fact the DC wire coming from the rectifier is....missing. Pulled out of the connector. So I need to figure that one out! This project may never end...

Congrats. For some reason I can’t see the pictures. I recommend getting the AllBallz tapered bearings for the steering head.

You obviously know what you’re doing but there is a really good how to thread with pics about replacing the bearings. Let me know if you have trouble finding it. I did the free rental on a bearing kit from Advance Auto because I don’t have any sockets that big to set them.
