At last, I get to start putting this motorcycle back together. Every time I install an engine in the frame it’s a milestone. Instead of taking things apart, I am starting down the road to getting it all back together again :-).
Here is a link to the documentation and the video I shot.

I had the frame powder coated.
I use some foam packing sheets to wrap the tubes so I won’t ding the powder coat when I put the engine inside the frame.
The top is off the engine so it’s lighter and easier to install in the frame.
This is the hardware used to mount the engine in the frame.
It’s mounted on my portable motorcycle lift ready to install the top end.
