Also finished shaping the seat for leather cover soon. Looks off kilter in the rear view but everything frame and tire wise measures correct, I will have to sort it out as the project gets further along I think a lot of it is the seat, fender and tailight bracket.

went to pickup some janitor supplies and there is a chrome plating place next door, curiosity caused me to stop in and ask price to re-chrome fenders, exhaust and a few other bits, WOW! quoted 1400. rough estimate as I did not have the parts with me. I can live with the current chrome that's for dang sure.

Yea your chrome does not look that bad at all..

Great work on the motor. VERY impressive. Dang you could eat off that motor. Looks very nice..

The rest of the bike is looking awesome so far also. Love that blue!

Thanks for the comments. I wish I could work on it while sleeping then I could have it done in time for the vintage GP at miller motorsports track in september. Also the motor is just set together I still have to put all the innards together, just wanted to see what it will look like.

Just so's you know by my other posts today I will be getting a beemer and would like to sell this project honda to someone who will get it back on the road and enjoy it. I'm asking 900.00 which is less than I spent on parts.
