Keep on keeping on ! 8)

Looking good, can't wait to see the finished project .... or at least a rolling engine / chassis !!

Thanx Beachy....I' trying to keep motivated, my son's helping with daily checks on progress haha!

I have hit a few snags that need working out so it looks like slooow progress but it's mostly in hand.

Swingarm pivot will be a 2 or 3 piece bearing roller & crush tube turned out of stainless and should fit together as a one piece once in. Awaiting a swingarm bolt to get the i/d required.

Front disc is a challenge.....EBC custom build options next me thinks.

Seat unit will need serious chopping....I can see where I want it to go...;)

Engine cases cleaned ready for the rebuild....which I'm trrepadatious about if I'm honest.....just where do all the part go?? A ball bearing fell out of somehwere the other day...WTF??!! Where from I have no clue?

Thanks for checking in.....:)

This is a first...a part that just fits on :)

Having mislaid the CB350 side panels I bought......I've bitten the bullet and purchased a pair of 400/4 side panels, in pretty good nick, with only one small crack which can be repaired.

They'll do and will look smart in white with the decals I already have :)



Sorting barrel/head studs in readiness for the engine rebuild.

Keep checking in folks....

Finished cleaning the main engine cases and bought some VHT black.....think I'll go black for the centre cases and glass blasted side casings, barrel and head.

The black Microns will look smart alongside that combo I reckon.

Also, my lad popped in and we got a bit more mocked up....swingarm will work with the primary and drive sprocket lining up and the chain angle to the pivot will work we reckon.

Side panels, rear guard insert, swingarm and engine in place (awaiting engine mounting bolts to arrive). The Honda top mounts line up perfectly, I have a plan for the lower rear and will also make the top and lower front mounts........starting to look like a bike at last.



Bought some white/grey primer as I want to give the side panels a quick prep and blow over along with maybe grey on the frame to see how the colours work in real life. More anon....
