Hercules dismantling

Managed it! It was much more difficult to remove the fuel tank and bench
without a key ;) Only one thing left, the two bags on the side. Without
the key it is not possible to open/dismount it.

This the old lether look cannot wait to reupholstered it. As I wrote in
the previous post I aready found someone who can provide me with new
lether.

I think the fuel tank is one of the biggest problems, as you can see
there is a lot of rust in it. I ordered already Phosphoric Acid for
cleaning the innards.

In contrast to the rest of the bike the light and speed meter looks like
new and is in a good condition.

33,963 Kilometers ... One day I'll reach the 34,000 :D

Results of today: The bike is in a very good condition for his age and
the fact that no one took care of it. New colors, leather and some love
to the engine will hopefully bring it back to the road. Thumbs up :)
