 Other plans:

 * 400F bars and 400F foot pegs.
 * I have a brand new wiring harness and controls.
 * Stock style, but smaller, signals and tail light (I have something in the works)
 * I plan on degreeing in the cam as well.

 Picked up a set of genuine 400F bars at Barber. Installed new RH and LH controls, throttle cable and my favorite Pro-Grips.

 The rest of the wheel/axle spacers were machined up.



 The top triple has been modified and the key switch hole machined off. Custom dust cover machined for top race.



  Top bridge drilled for bar risers (CB350 twin) and gauge mount attached.



 I hope to get it back this week. If I do, I can start on freshening up the forks and making stuff pretty.

Started working on some 400F pegs while I'm waiting to get back all the stuff I dropped off last week. Still need to modify the heim joint on the shifter and modify the brake lever.
