and how did it go?

The motor, clutch and fit/feel is perfect. I could balance without moving, do simple roll-backs and turn with the forks against the stop but It had no brakes (even with all new parts). 

This afternoon I fixed the fork leak and ground a ton of rust from the front brake drum liner which seemed to be a big improvement. It's got tons of compression, starts first kick, runs cool and the plug reads perfect. It pinged once when I almost stalled setting the slide stop and doesn't smoke. It seems perfect. I need help more help than the bike does at this point.
