Seat from Slipstream; thanx!  Tank: CB500T.  How many combinations of tank and seat have I now had on this thing?  Too many, I'm afraid, but this one I like.  So, with this nailed down I can start moving things along.

Thanx!  There are some details to sort out, but I can finally picture it in my head.  I had a general idea in mind right along but have had trouble getting the details filled in.  I came across a picture of a CL450 on here a couple weeks ago that finally got everything moving in the right direction for me. 

I'll paint the fork lowers and have the forks back together soon.  The headstock bearings are on their way from All Balls and if I get a coat of primer on the front fender to take away the distraction of that Kawasaki green I should be able to get a good vision of the front half.

It always helps to have a little inspiration. I think you really have a good thing going there. I agree, I think the fender may be a bit off with that color. It would probably help if some jack wagon would get you your swing arm back too eh =)

Are the sprockets gonna line up?

Rearsets are gonna be nice.  They look both cool and comfy.

Thanx.  Originally had the rearsets on the buddy peg mounts but when I'd sit on it I couldn't even get to the "vroom, vroom" part before hip cramps started.  I hope they aren't too low now.  If so I'll raise 'em up an inch and they'll still be "nearly 60" ergonomic.   I will have to find an off-set front sprocket, but it won't be as bad as I first feared it would be.

PBI Sprockets out of Oregon. I had one that is 400 thousandths offset made with them. Chromoly, machined from one piece. Was $55 to my door, took a week from order time to arrival.

Thank you, I appreciate that!

I don't worry about that "jack wagon" he's a good troop and will get to it when he can.  It's not like the world will stop turning or nothin'.  Had a grandson with us for a few days this week and the poor little guy got some kind of intestinal bug and was down for a day.  He shared with me so I was really down yesterday and now am only back up to 85% or so.  Dang, haven't been that sick in decades!  So, nothing has been getting done anyway.

Between the Kawi green front fender and that incredibly ugly yellow BMW K-bike front fender front half I'm going to use for a hugger... well, "clown bike" comes to mind.  A Honda w/ Kawi front and rear, Yamaha rearsets, BWM fender...  if not clown bike, at least eclectic, I guess.

No pix again, but got the other fork tube pulled apart.. No problems and nothing unexpected.  Both of the tubes are in beautiful shape with no pitting or rust.  All pretty much like new, really.  If I had the lowers painted I could get them back together.  Spoze I'd better get at the painting, huh?

Unless I get a better suggestion from someone on here I'm going to use synthetic 10w30 for replacement fork oil.  Some on DTT say that's the way to go, others say ATF and I haven't been able to find a consensus. 

I got the headstock bearings in from All Balls.  My only concern is that the bottom bearing doesn't want to slide all the way down.  I hope if I put the bottom triple and tube into the freezer I'll be able to get it to slide down without having to get the tube machined.  Guess I'd better get out the micrometer and and see how far off it is.
