Brake pedal ordered, should be here this week. Fired her up for the first time in Texas and she don't like the humidity  ;D I will have to do some tweaking to the air/fuel screws for sure, had to crack the throttle to keep her going. Same elevation, much diff temp and humidity, so well see where we need to be at.

Got a little checklist of stuff I want to get done before next ride:

-Rebuild front forks/check fork oil - Gotta fix the front end stiffness problem
-Lace up a new front hoop
-Fix front brake squeak (any suggestions?)
-Set up a better rubber isolator for the speedo
-Bend the spare kicker lever I have to get more clearance for rearsets.

Thank you much gentlemen.  I'll have a few updates to her in the coming weeks.

She successfully made the  journey to/from Barber,  and brought me to and from the park all weekend without a hitch. She blew a fork seal on the way home, no big deal since I never rebuilt the front forks and was planning on doing so anyways. Plus I have some gaiters to throw on that I've had for over a year. Eric (deviant) hooked me up with the hoop from the Fallin' Ditch Hell Ride, so the wobbly front rim will finally be replaced. I grabbed a Nissin caliper and matching master on the cheap from the swap meet, and I am considering a brake upgrade while I'm in there. That will remain to be seen.

All 3 of the sh**ty SS Allen bolts holding on the stator cover stripped out before I put the timing light on it last weekend, so I need to replace those bolts and o-rings and cut a new gasket to fix the drip drip of oil.

So more kinks to be worked out soon. Here's a pic of the ol' girl in the DTT display tent alongside some other fantastic member builds.



And if I didn't have enough projects going on, look what made its way home with us from Alabama. The good news is, this one runs, I just got the clutch unstuck today and the battery had just enough life left in it to bring me down to the end of the street and back.

I said I was going to take a break but I just can't, I'm too close to the finish (starting) line XD.

A couple detail shots of the paint







Started with the wiring and routing cables. I have some excess cable to lose on the clutch cable, trying to lose it around the headlight but anyone got a tried and true method for routing that cable with clipons? It's a stock 360 cable.

This is beautiful. I love the color!
I'm a noob. Be gentle.

This is awesome! Did you do a side by side of before & after?

Thanks! I don't have a before and after pic but I know there's one at the beginning of the thread. Started out as a stock CB360
