Doesn't look like much, but spent most of the afternoon shaping the base for the seat and trimming up the foam. I may still shape the foam a bit more after I get my rear sets welded up. Also, I still have not decided what I am going to do for a cover?
Next post should have the engine in the bike to mock up my exhaust and rear sets...

Engine is now back in the frame to mock up my exhaust and rearsets. I am going with two small steel cones from 7th phase http://www.7thphaseinc.net. I really wanted to do my own cans, but these are really nice and just a bit more than all the materials.
 
While I am waiting on the cans and a 2 J bends to build the collectors, I am going to weld up my rearset mounts using some square bar stock.
 
A few pics-

Thanks! I really like the old superbike cowls, but without a 3 foot long seat. Really hope to have some good progress to show over the next 2 months, because my goal is to put at least 6K miles on the bike this summer.

Project back from the dead!! I was in the UK for 4 years for work and this bike project put into storage. I'm back and getting the shop back up and the project revived. Time to finish...

Here is what it looked like out of 4 years of storage.

Currently working on the front end - more photos to come of progress
- gold valve emulators
- fresh oil/seals
- CB 750 rotor drilled and thinned
- fork leg modified for AP caliper
- remove speedo drive

CB 750 rotor after mods, much lighter! You can also see the mod to the fork leg for AP caliper.

Don't have it yet, but this is the caliper.
