Twin-cylinder four-stroke air-cooled rebirth of a Ducati 500SL

Well, I have been disassembling my M1Rs for a few days now. I have most everything apart and in well-marked bags. After asking around on the Pantaheads list, my attempt to source new screws and bolts came to a (well-deserved) screeching halt. I had a lot to learn about the strengths of certain alloys, the proper type of metal and coating to use for each location, and the ugly reality faced when finding the perfect screw and learning you can only buy 100 and not just the 1 you need.

So, as of now… I am reading. I have a lot of reading to do.
