Wow.
You have put a LOT of money into this bike, looks really good.
Looking at all those little packages of parts reminds me of a couple of bikes I've done.
You probably had more parts than a lot of Honda dealers!

It's great to have a few extra bits on the bike!! Hoping to do a bit more this weekend too!

Certainly put a lot of time and money into this project but I think the end results will be more than worth it!! It's already looking pretty good if I may say so my self

Dust then?

Never built a trailer queen so I don't understand the logic. Seems kind of a shame to have so much hoot potential and not use it! Hmm methinks you will crack someday and get it dirty. I know the thought now seems rediculous but bikes r made for ridin not dustin!
All that aside it looks awesome great job

Today's update:
Another Friday night in the garage, didn't achieve as much as last time but got the clutch cable in, rocker box finished and set the valve clearances. I'll hook up the decompressor cable tomorrow.
Also might get onto that pesky wiring.....

Good luck. Speaking of wiring I sold mine as a rolling basket case a couple weeks ago sorry I never responded to your request. Got $300 for the whole thing I figured it's easier that way.

besides.. wife said no more motorcycles, so if I sell one, and then get another it's not more it's the same right? heh heh

Yesterday I headed down to my dealer and ordered the gas tank. Finally! Good to know things are on their way now...
I also brought a set of bars, levers, throttle assembly, kill switch and several other bits.
I hope to start mounting the bars and other things today

Sorry about all the bad light photos! I haven't put in any good lighting in my garage...

I decided to throw on the bars I brought ( they have the same aluminium look that the swing arm has ) and I think the silver look is much ' cleaner ' than the black what do you guys think?
The clutch lever and perch are installed as is the throttle housing and kill switch PROGRESS
