Leaning towards a stock color...red, yellow, blue. In that order. Though I really like green.

That green is nice! I've always thought the yellow 400Fs were one of the best looking bikes Honda made. :)

The Black Knight was originally yellow...hmmm.
I was just looking at pics and I agree I like the stock Yellow w black side covers.

Kinna laughed at that cuz I was gunna say that my favorite stock colors were yellow, blue, red, in that order. Nothing wrong w/ red, really, the others are just more unique... something new and different, a RED Honda, right? Either way, you always do a fantastic job so regardless of the color, carry on, my man.

My hats off to the machinist that cut the bronze bushings.
Grease and Freeze. They are a dang tight fit.
The tube fit is perfection. Im really impressed.
5/8 threaded rod and it was all my little impact wanted to push them home.

Installed shock bushings the same way w a 3/8 threaded rod and impact.

Looks really nice.

Wish I had your enthusiasm to get out and do something with the stuff I have to work on.

Bikes, mowers, trucks, and deck lattice.

I'm lazy........................

Thanks my man, its not so much enthusiasm as it is necessity to see it done. Not getting any younger and w all my bad habits I want to get things buttoned up before I unexpectedly kick the bucket. haha. Im sure if I went to doctor for a checkup tomorrow, he would simply walk me out back and toss me in a grave.

Just wanted to let you know I'm watching this build, as I did your K75. Old Hondas really look fine with all the rough edges smoothed, as you clearly are doing. Love the detail in your work!

Wow, that sounds serious! Do me a favor, bro; before you go see the doctor how about making a stop at the attorney's office and add passing along that K75 to me into your will!
