These.

I ordered a set of those with Hagon eye to eye shocks and Dime City sent me a set of Hagon eye to clevis shocks and the mounts. I bolted on the shocks and sent the mounts back. They did not have the eye to clevis shocks listed and it is an easy swap if you have a welder but not having to do it is better.

Had to drive a few hours away the other day for a certification test for a new job. On the way back I stopped at a store that I didn't want him to stop at that isn't local to me and picked up a orbital sander while walking around in there tool department. Today I finally got the chance to go outside and do some work again and finish sanding and smoothing the tank for the poor boy chop.

Small progress since last july. Decided to run the green tank off the CB550 I'm parting out. I love the jade green to much.
Now i just need to find out the closest color to the honda Green pr have a custom rattle can mixed up for the details and rear fender.
