Yes, got it from MoMo.

Plan is to get it on the road and see how does she feel. If I like her, I will keep her.

Was mine for a short time period.  Did some work on it for a customer, but cost of repair to him would have been more than the 10 speed was worth so he gave me the bike with a PA title.  I sold it  to Prokop for what I had into it, labor was a loss(I am good at that scenario)… Larry

The sight window on MC was broken,  I found replacement on ebay.  According to the seller, the window is 18mm and the opening on the MC I measured at 18mm, too.  However,  the ebay listing said it is not compatible with Honda CB900C. 

The price was  two dollars and change shipped, so I took my chances.  I cleaned and lubricated the opening with brake fluid, installed the o-ring and gently pressed the window in.  It worked, and it does not leak now.

I wonder if under pressure will it pop out? Might test that before you get it near paint  :-\ Shouldn't be that much pressure, but you never know and certainly don't want to find out the hard way.

Yeah, I will test it after i bleed brakes.  You are right, there is not much pressure inside the MC.

That just might be an ideal bike to hitch a sidecar to. ;)

I might end up doing just that, make it a dedicated rig.

That's a really good idea. I would think the dual range transmission would be nice to have on a sidecar rig.

I replaced carb to airbox boots, freed the brake pedal - steel in aluminum, just brilliant  ;D - and went over front brakes lubing and cleaning. 

Time to find an exhaust.

Wow, I had  freed the rear brake pedal from the pivot. Delkevic was 300 or thereabouts...Larry
