Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

I'm glad to share the build with y'all. I got the bike fully wired up yesterday. No major issues, all the lights and ignition switch work, but I think my new starter button is garbage. Won't engage the starter motor. My brain is fried at the moment, so I'm taking the weekend off. Things look good for Monday though!

I got back at the wiring debacle today. Sourced the starter issue to a bad ground, fixed a bad headlight switch, and got the rear brake-light operational!

All wired up, harness is tied into place, and everything works!

Tomorrow I'll be testing the fuel system and making sure the tanks are good to go before applying the decals. Everything is looking good!

Here you can see the 1940's microphone that I converted into my new air-cleaner housing!

It's getting really close to being done!!!

Fuel system checked out fine, even started it up to set the idle and make sure the kill-switch works. Next up is installing the rear drive belt and chain, that and modify the brake pedal to work with the new pedal pads. So I'm shooting for having it running this weekend! :D

This restoration was probably my favorite build yet. I had a vision when I started tearing it down, and I was able to achieve that goal. Can't ask for more than that!

Everything works, all new wiring, all new fuel system, and quite the large list of minor fixes and refinements from the original build 15+yrs ago. 

 

I was going through some super old pics, and found a photo from 2002 when my buddy Tony first built this bike:
P6010011_zpsck6yqulf.jpg

 

Then, it got painted green and was sold to me about 10yrs ago.

Now, in it's third incarnation, I really feel like it's found it's voice:

It took me 47 days, and was one of the most fun builds I've done so far. Thanks for stopping in, and I'll definitely be updating y'all with any future projects. :)

I'll have it out at the Texas Motor Speedway all next week. Should be a fun time, I'll try and grab some pics while I'm there. The Pate Swap Meet is a great show, not too many Datsun parts, but they do show up. :)

P.S. Next project is already in the works, and it's not a bike...  :w00t:
