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....

Found sometime today....:)

Primed in white a side panel and grey primered the frame around it jsut to see how the white grey would look...me likey.



The scratch was caused by the seat unit...trial fitting ready for the chop.

1st cut is the deepest..



A lot more fettling to tidy it up and get the lines right. Also, the arse end will be trimmed down too.



I took a leap and cut the seat mounts/lock off.....oooeerrr!



Received the extra barrel studs and clened them up.

Looking to use stainless shoulderred nuts on barrel/head.....will they be OK?

Thanx for checking in.

A job I'd been putting off to be honest.....repairing the hole in the float.

Needn't have worried, turned out OK....



Also, had another go at cleaning the carbs using Wurth Carb Cleaner...good stuff but they also needed scotchbrite to remove a limescale like coating.

Pleased I left one carb intact to be a model should I forget how they go together.....



However, through all the grime I noticed one jet missing from the clean carb, the small one next to the main jet....bugger, cannot find it....yet!



Anyone got one?

Hey....I've not gone away.

Been waiting for my tame turner to produce the goods....



Had a pair of needleroller bearing races that spigot into the modified crush tube, to form one piece centre, which has turned out well.
Also, he's made me a L306 s/s spindle bolt with open threads on each end so I can use stainless nylocs to pinch it up.



Meanwhile, towards the front end I've made a first attempt at mounting the Brembo.....getting there with my first attempt to get into my rough mock up. I'm trying to get my head around how the final adapter will look.
Any advice on what material to use? I'm thinking 4mm mild steel plate with spacers welded to it.







Ignore that the caliper isn't aligned with the disc....it'd slipped on the loose bolts.

I need metric fine thread bolts.
