gave the wire wheel a go all weekend and it did come up ok(thanks  but I will have to take it to a metal worker to see if he can cut out the rust or worst case see how much to copy the shape and make a new pan. (Iím guessing tooooooo much lol) so weíll see what Iím told this week. Was also thinking of a cl175 exhaust or a two into one. Any thoughts? Im leaning towards two into one.

with the cl exhaust, you will have to replace the left side cover with one from a 1974 CL200.  Kind of a rare bird and the side cover is hard to find.  Could do pods and eliminate the side covers, though.

exactly. I was going to say the same thing. With mine, I am using PODs and getting rid of airboxes anyways, but the CB200 covers won't fit with CL pipes.

Predator  in England makes a 2into1. They are stainless and waaay expensive. I ended building one for my 200 project. Lots of cool cl pipes are being used and look great too.

Few things happening at the moment thatís delaying the complete strip of the cb200, in the process of buying a new home and the stress of that has meant the build is slowing down. Got one thing done though got a pair of uni filters for her but the flanges were to wide I was going to send them back and replace them, but had to buy new ones as the originals have gone ďwalkaboutĒ(lost....... not good lol $58aus down the drain).  But other than that fingers crossed I get this new home then she will be back in the fast lane.

Tankís all done as well finished the emblems this week new clutch cable on order as well ill through some more picís up later this week. Thanks to dime have also got a bell black custom 500 helmet and cafe racer DVD watched the whole DVD in one day very sad of me lol, but it was very addictive. Thanks guys.

G'day Mate, Looking forward to your build. I've looked at those Bell helmets and they are so nice. I just wish they came with Aust standard stickers inside.

Cheers Mega.
