'69 Bonnie Rebuild : Teardown

Sparkle Horse picked up this beast back in the spring time and it's been a noisy, oil spewing mess since the day he brought it home. Now we know why... The valves were loosey goosey in the guides, the pistons had more carbon on them than a 999R, you could move the pistons around in the jugs like nobodys business, and the cylinders were just plain fucked.

As you can see, it was quite a mess. Now come all the tough decisions... To 750 or not to 750? Go thru the bottom end?

I can only imagine how yummy looking the sludge trap must be...
