It's nice to see a FT500 getting some love. These were a solid bike, yeah, not HUGELY exciting, but solid and reliable. They suffered from the design trends of the day and lots of them seem to be hiding away in the background, off in a quiet and dusty corner, because they aren't hyper or sexy (as is). Eric has, now more than once, proven that one of Honda's ugly ducklings, if given some love, can be a capable, fun ride, and is worthy of attention. Good work, Irk.

Lots of seat posts, but it’s been a bit-by-bit process getting here. The final body work on the tail is done, and I got the seat formed this weekend. Waiting on the cover material. Winter break from teaching is in 15 days, so I hope to get a chunk done by January.

Hello
To be honest, I thought that those side covers look bulky and off.
But now, with that seat and tail, it fits right in :)
Very fun looking project. I am excited :D

A friend of mine in the area has a 500 Ascot. I enjoy seeing it because it's a unique old piece, but I'll never look at it the same again, knowing the potential it has.

I like flat track or street tracker looks but the bodywork is rarely well integrated and tank and seat and side panels rarely look right together. It's like the parts came from different bikes or different parts bins

But you have totally nailed the look. Tank,seat and side covers are freeking perfect. Nice work.
