    i had to drill a hole in the end of the sliding pin boss on a caliper to get a punch in to knock a seized sliding pin out once. only way i could see to get it apart, worked a treat. don't recall how i plugged the hole now, maybe a little screw.

    They can be tough to get out - I had one in the vice for about a week. Each night I would give it a twist and spray some more penetrating onto it until it finally came loose.

    YouTube is your friend.
    Recently met a girl who is completely rebuilding her CB350 - no experience at all, but she has rebuilt the carbs, engine, and tranny on her own from what she learned on YT

    I am 100% concerned with ensuring I get home to them every night.

    The cosmetic items are the lowest priority unless it makes more sense to couple them with a safety/performance repair/enhancement
    And ultimately I want Nancy to be a striking cafe racer gal.
    Yea stopping is kinda important, and is a huge part of your get home plan. You'll find as you clean the bike up and start improvements that it will come in to it's own look. Performance enhanced bikes that handle well just look good without trying. The term Cafe Racer has become so diluted as to what one actually is. From the "Hipster" to the "Track rider" they are different species. You mentioned possible performance enhancements during cosmetics and repairs. Don't know if it would make sense for what your doing but braided brake lines look the business and improve braking since your working on them anyway. Glad to hear your playin it safe.
    If you can't pick it back up, don't ride it.
