158 views and no comments?
 Anyway, did a bit of work on it today, made new rear fender mounts (gonna be trick  ;))
 here's light I'm going to use, with indicators to keep things somewhat 'legal'  ;D

 Here's stock XS650 light that I'm going to fit to the CB378 and mini light for comparison.  Stock light isn't damaged, just reflection of overhead florescent tube in ~2 o'clock position

Love the small light.  Is that the 4.25" you mentioned earlier?  Looks like h4 bulb?
I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

Yep, its 4.25" across the mountings, the light is 4".
Cut up some angle to make brackets to make brackets (spent a buch of time looking for 2" alloy, when I found it, I didnt like look of it.  ::)
Its a 60/55w H4, when I use them as duals I use FZR1000 Genesis bulbs (H4, 35/35w).

something to report  ;D
 worked on bike for quite a few hours today
 Finally got rear mudguard more or less the way I want it.
 Still needs some work and tail light needs finishing
will post pics when I get them on photobucket.
I think it looks pretty good.
 I'm probably going to cut the back off the frame (again, maybe?)
 May leave it as I think I'm going to make a high level exhaust and may need something to mount it to?
 Been looking at various XS650 sites, including the chopper/bobber ones.
No-one has anything close to what I'm building.
 Got some idea's I'm going to try out, wouldnt work on a cafe, may not work on a 'bobber'
 I know it will work as I've done it before on a trail bike so concept is sound.
 Was channel surfing this morning while having breakfast, seems the closest thing I can come up with as a 'style' is steampunk, only without the leather and brass.  :D
 Bike is definitely evolving away from 'bratsyle'  ;D ;D

I'm digging that mudguard, been following your the other thread as well, interested in see how you engine comes out. Hard to tell from the pic but does it sit on your swingarm with the axle bolt going through at the centre parts of the radial brackets to hold in on there? I like it.

Hi Jay, yep, I made it to sit so close to tyre it has to move with wheel so is centered on axle.
 There is a plat at front to prevent any rotation forwards, (counterclockwise) going to make a 'cup' to locate under bottom of swing arm cross piece so it cant move clockwise.
 Its 'normal' thing with rigid frame to have fender centered on wheel but I'm not sure its ever been done before with a swing arm?
