I completed assembling the bike from the frame through the gas cap and put together a write-up that shows the order in which I assembled it. You will find the write-up here:
It includes assembly of the front forks, seat, fenders, battery box, installation of the handlebars and cables, and odds and ends that I felt were better covered in this write-up rather in a separate one following the parts fiche breakdown I use for cataloging my write-ups. I include links to other write-ups where applicable to explain a particular procedure.
Here is a short video of a walk-around of the finished bike followed by some pictures.
Special Thanks to Those Who Helped Me
First of all, Tom Cutter at Rubber Chicken Racing Garage provided engine work, and transmission rebuild advice. And, bailed me out when a cir-clip came loose inside the transmission on my ride to the 40th anniversary rally in PA.

Matt Parkhouse, provided transmission advice and helped me source spare parts.
Norm Schwab, and the crew at Euro Motoelectrics, supplied the electrical parts.
