Shining new rear main

Behold the glory of a new rear main bearing -0.020"

Many thanks again to David and his wife at Stewart Engineering.  I wouldn't have been able to get this far without them.

Now that I know the exact measurements of the bearings, the crank will go off to the machine shop.  First I'll have to find one who can do a good job.

In the meantime, I have lots to do.  I have to make new brake linings for the front shoes... and probably the back as well.

During all this my poor XS650 has thrown a crank bearing, and is torn completely apart.
