Slippers and backing the bike out are a bad combo...

...BTW...
The colour has only just recently returned to my big toe after moving the Concours off the centrestand one day in the spring. So yes, any real work means footwear.

Nothing new as yet.
I'm going to have to ( mostly) finish the H1 first and probably sell it, it'll give me the space and the cash-flow to get into the 900.
It looks like someone else has started a similar project.Might be just the motivation I need to get back into it.
Out of all the stuff that I have, it's the one that I most want to ride.

Should be a cool project. If you're interested, I have a set of XL600R forks with fresh seals, dust caps, and boots. I believe they're the same size as the CB900F, and the same axle diameter. The spacing is different (I think the CB has wider-spaced forks, so you'd have to make some wheel spacers and fab up an offset brake mount, If you want to get a little more travel in your front suspension. I put them together for a project I ended up giving to my brother for his first bike and he only wanted the stock street forks.
