Looking good! I don't see any snow yet, I finally put the bikes to sleep for winter here today. Are you still riding there? I see your Duc is waiting at the door for you.

I have been riding the wheel off my trials bike, got up into the snow on it today. The Duc is licensed till the 11th but I'm not big on cold rides with wet leaves on the corners and tires that won't warm up till spring anyhow.

Keep up the good work and keep posting pics, looks nice!
Nice build thread,and an explanation as to why thin hydraulic fluid(fork oil) is so expensive.

Hey annony! Another killer bike build I see. You make it look so easy.
Heck, I'm about 4 years into my XL600, but I guess you actually have to WORK on it to move forward.

This bike's looking great, man. Nice work.

Good to hear from you brucifer , hope all is well!

Notice I have not had a chance to so much as touch the bike in a month now.

I am finally finishing the basement bathroom I promised Penny 4 (or was that 5) years ago. Hopefully the new year will give me some more time to finish it off.

My first road motorcycle was a CL200 - so I'm happy to see a CL getting saved.

Very interested in this rebuild, I will be starting my cb450sc rebuild soon (unless I decide to buy a running one and keep the one I have with it's seized right piston as a parts bike)Very glad to see the resources for information and parts here, gives me some good places to start finding what I need when I work out what I need.

This build has been derailed because life has been getting in the way but.... as soon as I finish Pennys new bathroom, have a mid winter holiday and do a little snow biking / sledding I will get back to the garage.

http://www.hondatwins.net/forum/index.php is a good resource if you haven't already found them.

Back in build mode, sorry for the interruption, picked up my cylinders bored to 2nd over to get rid of the nasty gouges



and this case gave me fits, as you can see there is a crater in the face of the cover that looked crappy




after a few hours of fileing, sanding etc


and as a sidenote I picked up these 2 gems today for the next go round (it will take both and then some to make 1)

Always my favorite part of a build, usually I save it till last but I needed some motivation.

While cleaning up the heads, valve and seats I come across a broken valve guide



and notice the new valve seal (on the right) is way different from the ones that came with the gasket set

.... just what I needed

Valves and seats cleaned up nice





So while I wait for more parts it's time to look at doing something with the body work.



And heres that case I was working on a few posts ago powder coated in a color real close to the Honda silver
