79 kawasaki invader

I hit a heck of a deal the other day. I came across a 79 kawasaki invader 440. My first sled was a 78 invader and I have been looking for one of these in good restorable shape for a long time. I hit this one with only 522 mile on it. Seat is bad, (he threw in another seat that needs recovered but other than that in great shape), the windshield is cracked (easy to throw a new one on), and that mag side of the motor is fried. I ended up getting another cylinder and head as well as 2 new pistons and its good to go.
I have been taking some time on this one. It probably wont look like it did on the showroom floor, but it will be really close. As of last night, there was no 2 bolts attached on the sled anymore. I have taken everything apart. Tonight I got started on getting the motor back together and come pretty close to getting it all done. I will get some pictures taken and get them posted when I can.
