As my rear brake disc bolts soak to get the rust off, I painted the center of the disk. The stripped bolts will get the heads painted black.
I managed to get one of the front discs bolted up, but I ended up having two of the used bolts break with the correct torque when trying to install the second one. Now that I am getting really good at drilling out bolts and extracting them, I threw in the towel and ordered all new bolts.

I am in northern Nevada, near Lake Tahoe. There is a huge amount of mountain roads to ride in a very short distance from my home. It will be a fun weekend bike for sport riding. I will probably not put it on the track, but want it capable to do it.
