I assume you put down a layer of plastic sheet to protect/allow for easy removal?

When molding the fiberglass on the frame?
I put some newspaper hehehe.
and used it to isolate/protect the gas tank too, since i needed it on place to shape it perfectly.
Works like a charm, and it's free!

Kind of got the coil sorted.  It wasn't bad.  Not sure why I wasn't getting spark.  Got it running again for a few minutes while I tried to sort out the brake lights, but now it won't run for more than a few seconds.  And as soon as I give it gas, it pops and shuts off.  And the interval keeps getting shorter for run time the more I try to get it going right after it dies.  I'm wondering if it's points.  Also need to double check the regulator/rectifier.

I also just replaced the float needle.  I wonder if float height would affect this?  Need to double check that.

You should always check and re-set float level when you fir new shut off parts

Float level FTW.  I was checking it wrong.  Got the level set correctly and it's now running.  Thanks!

Ordered some Avon AM83's.  Current tires are old and not quite the right size (too wide up front). 

Need to figure a way to remove the rear fender and remount taillight and turn signals.  Might just trim the fender up.

You need a smaller tail light, the original Honda one is huge.
I like the 60's style Lucas but prefer the 'raw alloy' to chrome plated

Definitely want a smaller taillight.  That one looks like it would work well.  I wonder how well that would fit the fender?

I've only fitted them to CB360's. Modified to fit over rear frame rail (like later 60's/early 70's Triumph's)

 I really should have taken a few measurements plus made a template to cut on it but I wanted to see it in position I just used a carbide burr
