I spent some time in the shop the last couple of days. I made up an electrics pan and worked up a seat pan. I'm not sure how/where I'm going to mount the battery but I will cross that bridge when the battery geta here. I'm still working on routing the wiring I have a pretty good map laid out but again the final wire up will happen when the battery gets here.
So it has been a quite a while between now and my last post. I have been working on a couple of other projects and had kind of put this one on the back burner.
Today I got back around to it and started dropping in some wire. I have started mounting all the components. Put the Reg/rec where it can get plenty of air and got the front light wired into the hand switch. I Also put some new bearings in the rear wheel.
It's been a wile since I have posted anything. Yesterday I put in some work on the wiring and am very near to completion. I ran out of wiring components and had to run to town. That kind of slowed my roll.
The fenders were done in a textured black. The tank needs another coat of clear and wet sanding. It was in the low 30's when I sprayed the tank so I think this may have impacted how the clear coat went down.
Thanks dualero. I noticed when the engine stopped during my initial fire up and carb adjusting. One of the bolts on the cam sprocket had sheared and the other bolt stripped and slung out. Luckily the one that stripped and worked out was still lined up and holding the timing sprocket to the camshaft. So the pistons did not slam into the valves. Everything turns freely and I'm keeping my figures crossed.
I have had some questions about the tank for this project so I took a couple of pics from one I'm working currently. The tank is off an older (76ish?) CB750. I widened the tunnel to fit the backbone of the cm. I marked the area I widened with black sharpie. I also had to shorten the mounting tabs on the bike and tank.
It has been a long time from my last post. I moved last year and that slowed things down. This project is almost complete at this point just need to wire the kill switch ant the electrics will be done. Still need to cover the seat and tune the carbs. I also need to replace fork seals (got carried away with the ratchet straps when I transported it).
