Re: newbie cb200 build

So she’s now stripped minus the swing arm bold which we are having a few dramas with. As soon as that’s done powder coating and the fun stuff begins. Wiring loom is in good nick and whole bike needs a good cleaning de greasing and polish. Had a mate come help as the lil twin was a headache to remove from frame and trust me two heads hands and muscles are better than one. My garage now looks like a parts store grease everywhere, but trust me when i tell you I have a smile from ear to ear every time I think about it.

The carbs (kit and paint)
