Agreed on that gold-my dad had a 350 in gold that seemed monstrous when I sat on it way back when!

outstanding ,as time goes by OEM looks best....are you missing the splash guard from the disk?

Really nice job, I'm a firm believer in dust being great rust protection.

Yes, I am missing the dust guard...actually, I didn't know it originally had one until you pointed it out. :-)

Some photos of my old rides:















Neat old bikes, one and all. None really usable as dual sports or adventure bikes, but with the notorious unreliability, one always has an adventure in riding them, as one doesn't know for sure he will get home!

Stunning! Amazing job there! The 4-1 really makes that bike look more sportier than it did when it was 4-4. That simple mod really is in line with what Honda could've done, so I commend you for your devotion to honoring an original design.

Honda did do a 4 into one in 1978 and called it a SuperSport.
