My project is coming to completion (although it's never really ever done). Rather than have my creation dipped apart by a biased audience, I shall leave the results to myself.  The design of a motorcycle is a personal one. Yes it may affect the rideability of it, but as long as the person riding it is safe and enjoys it, nothing else that matters. 
VH, I will send you a couple pictures, as you have been respectable with your observations.

And let's all not forget...... If you have a hoodie. Make sure you use it only to wipe down your bike, as you will be criticized by someone with "way" more intellect and style than you.  If you get cold without it. I am sure he/she will let you borrow their snuggle.

Not sure I agree that this bike has too many colors. It's not my style,
at least not the red frame, but color scheme is dead on. Silver things in the rear are to emulate classic number plates, and most likely hide some of the electrical bits. That swing arm is a work of art. Never before have I seen one quite like it, nor probably will see again.

To look in a magazine and copy what is the latest trend is boring and weak. These guys did something unique and daring. I applaude them for the effort into this creation.

Oh and as a man in my 40's, and an avid snowboarder,  A hoodie is not meant to be "fashion statement" but an article of clothing to keep warm. So when I where mine, I don't give a crap what someone thinks is a "bad fashion statement" and more that I am comfortable.

I haven't seen this one. But I really like it.

Thanks Morti... Just ordered the set. Will update as soon as they arrive.
6  General Category / General Motorcycle Discussion / Back together... Now carbs leaking on: May 28, 2017, 04:01:51 PM
So, like the title says, I finally got the bike back together(minus the tail). It started almost right away, then noticed a large drip/leak coming from bottom plate of carbs. I am pretty sure it's seal related.
Question is, am I missing something on removing the carbs?  I loosened all four rubber rings, and still will not pull off. I am trying to be careful, as I don't want to scratch my freshly painted frame.
Any helpful hints would be most appreciated..

I have a set of the blue colored ones in my garage, I won't be using. I know they are aftermarket, but not sure if maker. I would be willing to let them go if you cannot get them from retailer.

Hey Vintage, ask them if they have a video on the installation of the guages.... Those are killer. Thanks

Frame, swingarm and triple are painted. I need to buff them, but will wait til the bike is put back together. Time to start the re assembly..

I like this bike. It appears to be in good condition, and the added bonus of the rear shock.
The only thing I think of is the mileage, being a bit high. It's a Honda, so it should run forever right?
11  General Category / General Motorcycle Discussion / Re: CB1 - with a "tastefully done" cafe styled tail on: March 30, 2017, 12:25:57 PM
I agree with both of you regarding the tank. This is what I am dealing with now.
I really don't like the wrap around style of the stock seat, so to incorporate a seat that wraps around some of the tank is what I plan to do. This may not cover the whole indent on the side of the tank, but has to cover at least the end where it connects to the subframe.
12  Classifieds / For Sale / Possible parts bike? on: March 28, 2017, 08:19:32 PM
This 89 was just listed a few towns over from me. Could be a good parts bike for those who are searching. I might pick it up just to see what I can strip. Tank looks to already have a ding, but tail and fender look good. Let me know what you think.

Very pretty. Seeing these pics, makes me think I should have kept mine stock..
Oh well, too late now..

Yeah, as many know I recently did the front end swap with a 2005 CBR600rr. That does require the use of the whole front end off of the CBR. Pretty much a bolt on, and the front rim of the CBR is also a three spoke, so matching the rear rim is good. You will have to modify the guages bracket, but takes about an hour, depending on your skill level.

I have to agree, rattle cans are tricky, and can come off looking poor.
I have been using Duplicolor wheel paints for years, and am very happy with the lasting results.
I will be painting my frame myself once the weather here in NJ gets a bit warmer. I am trying for the first time, Spray Max 2k, it has a hardner built it and replicated a pro spray paint. It's all with the prep. Take your time and the results will show.
