I've read up about Evaporust. Apparently its a environmentally safe way to get rid of rust. You just soak whatever you want and then you can just dump what's left and it won't kill anything. I want to eventually try using this for my tank, but I thought I'd first experiment on my rusted triple tree.
It ate through the rust, and also took off some of the paint (which I don't mind because I want to repaint anyways). It said that It wouldn't damage powder coating...I think it only took off paint because it was chipped due to the rusting anyways. On to the tank!

I thought I'd take some pictures to compare my new performance stuff with their stock predecessors. First up we have the carb. The Calibretta is sooo massive with added length and a giant expansion chamber.
Which leads to the cylinder. Check out the difference in exhaust ports! It's the difference between my thumb fitting in there vs. my pinky.
There are obvious porting and cylinder size differences...Not sure what I'm going to have to do to case match as there are so many more ports. I'll have to look at that when i get my new cases.
I couldn't find my stock head, so this comparison is between a 70cc Olmpia header...I'm probably going to run into problems with this bad lad as well. Hopefully it will fit...???
When comparing the flywheel for the cdi unit, I noticed that on the inside has a straight cylinder where it fits over the cdi as opposed to the mellow ramp of the stock flywheel. I'm sure I'll figure out why soon...my assumption is that is just the shape that needs to fit with the cdi.

So I've been waiting for parts to arrive at treats...I'm getting a little anxious. I know that he has the best deals, and he's been the most solid in terms of getting parts shipped quickly...But I'm getting anxious. Mr. Malossi needs to ship the parts to treatland soon!
