Congrats on the ability to ride again.  And also on the mostly trouble free ride.  All good news.

Well, spoke a bit too soon  :(
 Went out again Sunday afternoon, around 12 miles elbow started hurting.
 Luckily I was in a loop near where I live so got home in ~3 miles
 Anyway, got a bit more done of fork lowers, thought I hit them up with 120 grit flapwheel but it was 80 grit I grabbed  ::)
 Got one done with 240 grit and the other 2/3 done (thought it was taking a long time to get scratches out  :D)
 getting done with 320 next then 400, 600 and polish
 You can see scratches in lower leg, they were pretty bad before I started, this is the improvement  ;)

 Not sure if I'm going to use GS500 front mudguard, I have 2 so I cut one down
Before

After (but before trimming to final shape, smoothing out curve and sanding edges)

 Probably won't get much done this week, doctors and Physical therapy for 4 days  :o

Glad to hear you are on 2 wheels again (however shortly). I like the fender! Good work PJ.

Suppose you tried tried telling the docs that you have bikes to build? No time for therapy! :D

Well, after appointment with surgeon I now have a 35lbs weight limit. (instead of 2lbs)
Got one fork slider finished and shiny, will get the other done tomorrow  (I have to go to work soon)

Here's both done

 Should have forks re-assembled tomorrow night or Sunday morning.
Was going to buy headlamp mounts but decided to make some as I have an idea to try out.

Got a piece of 1/2" aluminium plate to make headlight mounts, will be machining this weekend.
 
 Rode bike to work yesterday, still has high bars and 35yr old tyres (with 35yr old air in them  ;D)
 Really stupid thing to do but it was fun, first time I've been any real distance for over a year (still only 40 mile round trip)  8)

 Couple of people wanted to see bike before I started work on it. (as it's back to more or less stock)
 Seemed like a good idea, until I realised I don't finish until 11.30 pm at earliest
Made a short video, leaving work, coming home, playing in traffic after midnight. 
It's 209mb (6 minutes)
 I haven't uploaded it to photobucket yet, may not bother as it isn't 'exciting'

Huzzah! That's good news PJ! I'm glad to hear you have it 'on the road'....even with the terrifying tires. I won't ping on your for that......hehe
Are you planning to go for the hopped up version again?

I'll have a go, don't know how to edit it to reasonable size though?
 Downloaded free editingprog but don't know how to use it
 Meanwhile, this is exactly how it looks with exhaust cleaned up a bit (no airboxes or pods with stock battery box) Jetting is slightly rich with the carb mods I've done, they are very close for a less restrictive exhaust.

 SUV pulled out on me on I-4, speedo was showing 70mph but it was a lot closer to 55~60mph.
 Then he/she/it hit the brakes   :o
 I got a 'bit close'( but didn't hit it  8) )
 Unfortunately I didn't have camera running (would have been 'interesting')
 Who said early Honda brakes are crap?
  Rotor did get a bit 'warm' and turn blue where pads are touching (new pads not fully bedded in yet)

 Hell yeah.
 I have the motor from (page 6?) 99% done, (haven't had time to finish external oil line and polish a few bits)
 Forks are 99% done, handlebar clamps not cleaned/polished yet.
 Going to make headlamp 'ears' over the weekend and try to get bar clamps done.
 Front mudguard is now ' Apple Red' but I'm really not happy with finish so it's getting done over

 Front tyre is a Continental, even at 30+ yrs old it's softer than a Dunlop D404  :o
It doesn't have any cracking (damn, they made good tyres back then  ;D)
 The rear is a Bridgestone, worried me a bit but it has been up to 90mph+ on dyno with 300lbs 'rider'
 Still pretty undecided about posting video, I did get it to load to photobucket.
 If screen brightness is high/stock LCD, it don't look too bad  ::)
 May need more than one opinion
Pulled video, was too long and boring
