Long awaited CB200 Build

Decided to hack apart my seat unit after all this time, as the shape wasn't quite doing it for me anymore and when I figured out how I wanted the seat upholstery to look I realised I couldn't do what I wanted using it as it was. It's quite funny because the seat unit and cowl led the design from the start, but, design evolves and here we are. I think it's looking much better now by following the lines of the new frame. I'll be making a seat pan next.

Chopped up the unit, cut new lines and re-glassed the original bum stop back on. I made a pretty sloppy paper template along the way to try and check the looks.

Now making up the cap for the tank, also serving as my tank tie down. Might need to factor in some space for vibration between tank and frame I guess.

Shock mounts machined after a couple of rounds 3d printing / prototyping. I might drill some points for indicators in them as well.

Got the shock mounts, seat frame bars and tank end cap welded on yesterday. In the words of the Beatles, with a little help from my friends.... :)

I think it’s time I learned to weld.
