Has anyone ever bought one of these seats? how was the quality? Originally i wanted to make my own but for such a low price it seems like this might make more sense?

When I pressed the outer races for my all balls head bearings, the lower on went slightly inside the head tube a little so the dust seal seals against the head tube.  The upper is flush with the head tube.  I took a thin feeler gauge and it would not slip between between the seat in the tube and the race.

Ok thanks, what did you use to seat the lower race?

I used this threaded rod with large washers to pull it flush with the tube and then a socket upside down with a short extension and a dead blow hammer.  I put the frame on some towels turned upside down with the head tube on a wood block padded with a couple of shop towels.  Put some grease on the outside of the race and the inside of the head tube.  Tap it and it will change tone when it bottoms out on the seat.  I like the dead blow hammer because I can hear it bottom out.

Travivisual,
   
      Thanks for all the feedback and information on the soda blaster.. much appreciated.. As far as the seat goes.. You never know what you are going to get with those ebay seats as far as fit and quality goes.. for my last build project I made my seatpan/tailpiece.. and then I made a second fiberglass upholstery pan that I had foamed and leathered.. I can throw some example pics if you want.. it worked well.. i didnt want to trust one of those ebay seats

Thanks for the tip 45exmayor, that way worked! bearings are sitting nice now.

Luugo86 - Yea  i was just curious, I am still holding off and will probably make my own seat. thanks for the input

Since i have my front end dialed, I moved onto the 12v conversion and ran into a bit of a snag...

I need to keep the seal and cables from my cb100 stator and move it to my replacement cb350 stator.  I saw some people just silicone the wires to the engine where the  seal goes but i dont really want to do that. Can i cut and splice before the seal? will that work with the wire coating?

On another note, i think i need to tear the whole motor down soon too before i finish the build. once i opened it but it had some gray/brown slush in the casting. I cleaned it before I put oil in it in the first place. probably has been broken down since the 70s.

My bike came with the exhaust missing, how is this suppose to mount back here? in the repair manual i cant find anything.

 i know im late to the game on this one. but really like the paul smart color scheme.
http://kdicycles.com/ check out this color scheme. little more saturated than the paul smart bikes, but damn it looks hot.

The 7 inch one will look to large on the small bike.  Any of the others will look fine, jus depends on what final look you want.  The one with the halo will make the bike look more modern.  Be sure what you get had an H4 bulb mount so you can use a led light if you want.
