Guys, guys, guys! What the heck did I just find?

I haven't measured them, but I just chucked up the rear in a frame I have for mockup. I'm wondering if it's worth adapting to my cb550 or just sell them. Rear looks like spacers would do it, besides of course adapting a rear caliper bracket and master cylinder for disk. I'll have to take a closer look at the front tomorrow.

. If they are for a CB, you're golden. If they are for a Kawasaki, you're in for a real treat trying to adapt them. It's possible, as I've just finished a KZ/GPZ swap on my CB750 for the stock Kawi version of that mag. But you'll be throwing several bikes at it along with sleeves and spacers.

Good find, now get them cleaned up and crack tested before you paint them or use them on a bike. If they are magnesium, the issue is that they age harden and can crack, so they must be tested.
