Shake the Box Kit - CL360

Thank you for the nice comment. We'll see how it turns out...

Got a bit done today.  The side stand mount is going to be welded back on farther forward so that the stand doesn't interfere w/ the rear set shifter.



The upper shock mounts had to go, so....



Gone gone gone...



Also gone is the original tank mount.  Instead it'll be rubber mounted and secured though the large hole.  The tab on the rear of the tank will be shortened so it won't interfere w/ the end of the seat when it's mounted.



And finally here's a couple of shots of the tank and new seat sitting in place.  The size is much more in scale than the other one and should look good.  It needs some work, but will be ok.  The vinyl that came w. it itsn't in bad shape, but I think I'll use it as a pattern to have a new one made out of real leather just for fun.



 

Still have to cut off the tool box mounts, leaving the motor mount half in place... figures that a couple of the most simple cuts will be the most PITA... no room to get the tools in there until one of them is gone.  So far I've been able to use rotary tools, but I may have to break out the recip saw w/ a hacksaw blade to get the first one off.   After that more smoothing and clean-up then it'll be time to get some welding done, then off to the sandblasters.

Well I know it's bee a long time, but work, hand surgery and life in general contributed to keeping things at a slow pace.  Hand is working better and I've retired, so it's time to get back at this. 

Last summer I got a few things done.

This pix shows the new shock mounts and the lugs for the rear set mounted.



This one shows the shock, w/o the spring, mounted in place.



Here is the left rear set (shifter side) mounted:



And here is the rear brake side:



My decent capacity heater went up in smoke back in November and the replacement isn't really up to the task, so I'm having to wait until warmer weather to get much done but at least things are back underway on the project. 

Next up some sand and prime, sand and prime, sandblast a few small parts, then sand and prime some more.  Hmm, maybe I'll have a roller in six years?  ????

Time in the shop at last!  Finally got back at the bike and started to tear down the forks for a rebuild.  Of course, with all the tools I have you'd think there'd be an 8mm T-handle there somewhere, right?  Of course not; back to the hardware again.  Anyway,  a couple of pix:



On another issue, I'm going to be using a digital speedo so I won't be using the drive on the front wheel .  What's the standard practice with these?  Leave it in place?  Replace it w/ a spacer?



At this point I'm still not 100% on this tank and I threw this seat pan on to just see what it would look like. 



At least maybe I can start making some real progress.

Thank you sir!.  I think it'll work out fine.  The Mrs. really likes that color and thinks the whole bike would look good in it.  I like it too, but had to explain to her that, while the whole bike is completely non-traditional, I would really have trouble putting a Honda into a Kawasaki color.  I don't think she agreed w/ me but oh well.

New fork seals are on the way.  Disassembled the first fork stanchion today.  Even with the right tool in hand it took a lot of leverage with a very long handle to get the one axle pinch bolt to pop loose.  Once that was out of the way everything went fairly well for 13 year old parts that probably have never been apart.  The fork oil even looked relatively good, but, though they weren't leaking, the seals are due for replacement.
