I got the re-sleeved master cylinder back from Apple Hydraulics in New York today. They did a fine job. You can see the nicely fitted and honed brass?? sleeve they inserted. I got it all back together and the front brake works quite well now. I'm quite happy with the braking for the first time since I bought the bike.
All I have left now is to install the new points, set the timing, check the carb balance one last time, and she's ready to go. I'll still work on the seat and lubricate the center stand and some other things here and there, but she'll be pretty much ready to ride on Saturday.
I'll give it a good wash and take some final pictures, then it's time to put on some miles.
Oh, yeah, maybe I'll get a license plate....
Here's the re-sleeved master cylinder. It was $90 to have this done.
