I just bought two M1030B1's. One is a bit of a parts bike. My buddy and I split the total cost and he will get the better of the two bikes. I just need to find a black out light and switch. My bike is missing it but the other one has it. We are going to tear them down and restore them. I'm going with a desert tan paint job with CARC paint.View attachment 645630View attachment 645627View attachment 645628View attachment 645629
I have a rear black out light for it

As a Marine, I want to say thank you for preserving this portion of our heritage.

As a motorcycle owner and Marine, this is my 1984 FXST with the paint job my pop put on it in 1994 and it repainted in my beloved Corps colors.

I also took the opportunity presented while the tins were off to paint to completely rewire the old girl, so I know your wiring frustrations!!
This is awesome! I got a total of eight of these USMC bikes and this is the 7th one I've restored. I figured why let them go to waste and of course I've always wanted one. I first saw them on Okinawa, Japan during a off road HMMWV course on the beach. I barely make money restoring these but it is a fun hobby.

While waiting on the new seat foam and seat cover, I threw an old one on there. Got the plastics on, the front blackout light, and fender goggle bag. Still don't have power to the rear harness for the tail light / brake light. I do have power in the blue wire for the turn signals. I’m thinking it’s the new ignition switch or maybe the ground still?

This is something I’ve used on all of my restorations. On the right side of the bike, behind the plastic, is the muffler. Originally the side plastic had a heat resistant pad. These degrade after awhile so I’ve found a replacement. I’ve attached some pictures. I’ve never had any issues with it. Also throwing up a picture of both of my M1030B1’s together.
