Wheels and front end fitted, rear is just a rebuilt stock one but with an 18" rim. Forks are 1st gen Bandit which are the same diameter as the orig Honda forks and give a small increase in trail but more importantly have a larger disc than the Honda one, using the Suzi caliper as well means everything bolts up with no messing around with caliper spacing or different brackets etc...wheel bearings and spacer need to be changed as the Honda spindle is 15mm and the Suzi one 17mm
The disc itself is from a Cagiva Gran Canyon....correct diameter and fits the Honda hub!

Oh yes!  This is the most perverted bike pork I've seen in ages.
I was born a rocker.  I'll die a rocker.  And I'm proud of it.

Bike pork...is that like bike porn but meatier! Thanks though, I'm enjoying this build as I've done several before and no awkward problems cropping up....only real problem my memory....I write stuff down to do and still manage to forget it....the other day I painted the frame only to realise I'd forgotten the bracket for the master cylinder reservoir and today noticed I'd also forgotten the speedo sensor bracket too....oh well
Motor in today, the bike it came from had only done 9,000 miles so it just had a top end strip and checkover and a coat of VHT....made a lift out of a couple of old scissor jacks, its not the heaviest thing in the world but saves a lot of swearing, scratched paint etc...
On with the wiring next....my favourite!

Most of the wiring done, since this bike is having lights, indicators etc am using the stock Honda loom....extended in some places and shortened in others!
