crazypj, Do you have a shot from the back?  Looks like it fits well.

Just replaced the throttle cable last night (took the slow boat from China to get here 2 months after ordering, but it's NOS Honda and was cheap).  Nice and smooth now.  Waiting on new tubes so I can throw the Avons on.

Front Avon tire mounted. That was fun.

Also cleaned up the rim.

Rear Avon mounted and rim and exhaust cleaned up. Glad I replaced the tires. Gave me an opportunity to grease the axles. They were bone dry. Bearings also got some lube.

Sorry, can't post any pictures as Photobucket has gotten incredibly greedy.
 They would 'need' $399.99 a year for my 0.5Gb to be allowed to be 'hosted on 3rd party'
 What do you use for pictures?

I've used Photobucket also. But here I just attach directly. I've tried Imgur, but seems a little clunky. Might have to give it another try.

Only just found out I can post directly here  :)
I know I have a good pic from rear 3/4 if I can find it

Since this turned more into a restoration than a cafe project, can we move it in to the Restorations section? 

Thanks!

I've been playing with the air/fuel mixture on the inlet side of the carb (about 2 1/4 turns out).  It had been fouling the plug running rich.  Took it out last night for the first time around the neighborhood.  My wife took it for one spin and got it nice and warm.  During my ride, at the second stop sign, it wanted to die when I tried pulling away and gave it throttle.  I might have had the mixture too lean.  I've since turned in the screw about a turn and throttle response came back.  I have the stock intake boot on, but the stock filter has been replaced with a pod. 

Does anyone know if these ran rich from the start?
