Sheeeesh - making us all look bad :)
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Nice work on the fender. Did you smooth the bead on a bead roller or e-wheel after hammering it?

Thank you.

The bead is all hand formed and planished with hammer/slapper and dolly. I donít really have a bead roller, and itís too narrow to fit in  my wheel or planishing hammer.

Oh what a beautiful bike.  Your metal working skills are impressive to say the least.

On the mono conversion?  What did you decide to do, if anything, to address the increased stresses on the SA pivot point?  Im considering converting mine(cb750) when I start to build it, and I'm interested in hearing if i should be worried about this or not.  Tons of people have mono'd that bike, but that doesn't make it right ya know! lol

Again beautiful bike!  Jealously is real!
Lurker and dreamer.  Maybe one day Ill start on my bike.

I am going to be adding some additional bracing once everything is mocked up and I can check clearances. Iíll post up pictures when itís done.

The fender mounted in place.


I also rolled it outside for the first time in a while.

I started working on the new engine cover to replace the original airbox. Once itís finished Iíll bead blast it at low pressure to give it some texture to match the engine.
