Progress today I de-laced one of the wheels getting ready for powder and sorted out the other bits I wanted to do at the same time.



I also cleaned and sprayed the engine mount bolts and will do the mounts themselves soon.



Prepped the rear fender for a slight
chop

That post just holds a cotter-pin to keep the washer / brake pad ends in place right? Just missing a small chunk? It will be fine. It's a cotter-pin, not a circlip I think.
Cotter pin. You are correct. It'll hold just fine. Mine had a nail through it from the PO!

Kewl thanks guys, hit a bit more done today both wheels now are de-laced and ready for powder.

And getting the hubs ready too.

Also the new throttle cable came which is brand spanking new. Check our how bad the old stretched cut up one was.

Did you take that front hub apart to get at the bearing? Honda doesn't make a tool for it anymore and I'm wondering where I can get an aftermarket one. Most guys use a punch and hammer I guess but I tried that and the square holes are getting all beat up. Not working out too well.

So are you still going to powder everything black? or adding a bit of blue like the tank? ???

I just dropped off the hub to a local machinst who's gonna make me a tool that'll plug into a 1/2" socket. It'll make bearing race removal A LOT easier considering I've got 10 more bikes to do and I've already trashed 2 hubs!

All black. I like it clean it will have chrome accents like spokes shock springs etc but I love the way the frame came out so I'm keen to keep it mostly black. Thinking of metal air filter covers getting them fabed and having a number on them like milehigh did on his cl450 "ginger" bike. What do you think?
