Thanks for the nomination of my project 74 CB550. I'm probably too late to accept the nomination. I didn't log in the forum for a while and never saw the post. I would have accepted though...

Nomination for my 1974 Honda CB350F humbly accepted. Many guys on here do some phenomenal work on these bikes. I'm only trying to measure up to what I see in these original-style restorations. You guys provide inspiration, especially when I'm either not feeling motivated or am stuck at a tough point in the current project. I only wish we could save more of 'em. So many bikes, so little time (and money!  ;D ;D )
