Front end is apart to replace the forks (original upper tubes are bent), front tire, and brake pads. I'm taking some time to do clean up other parts and repaint or polish them while they're off.
got a set of cb550 forks in good shape. The design is a tad different than the 750s in the upper and lower tube lengths but they should bolt right on and with the brak bracket as well. Spent some time with them on the buffing wheel to get them super polished.
Sandblasted my caliper then hit it with some primer, silver base, and clear. Turned out real nice. I polished up the caliper bracket a bit too.
I put a new tire and tube are on the front wheel and painted it gloss black to match the rear. It was dark outside so I don't have a finished photo, but it looks great! I should have everything back together tomorrow!
