I'm putting a new Rectifier/Regulator into my CL350 at the moment and I'm considering doing the same on a CB160 that we are sprucing up. These will come from Charlie's Place, a local San Francisco vintage Honda expert, who also has a electronic ignition made for the CB160.
Might be worth checking out what he has to upgrade your CL450, with all that work you're putting in!

Still not out of the forest with the motor, thought I had a valve guide coming but the vendor cancelled the order saying they were out of stock...

So I turned to the sandblast and powder cabinets

fresh fire engine red powder


but alas it was a fail



first time Ive seen this defect so off to the stripper bucket and a reshoot



better but has some orange peel that I think I can get out with sanding

and the fork ears

So I striped and reshot side panels and shot a clear over the panels and the fork ears



I'm happy with the fork ears but the side panel started that burned look on the bottom after the clear was cured
and the other side panel orange peeled like crazy, back to the stripe bucket for those 2 parts



maybe the third reshoot can be a charm.... I do think I know where I messed up.

More details, thought I'd show just how much time and effort goes into the details. First step is masking

next step is shoot, then strip off the masking

then wipe where possible and cure

Glad you are enjoying it, thought I was talking to myself most of the time.

This latest try is still a maybe, frustrating but I am learning my guns limitations The badges will need some attention.


Now for these dirty things...... actually I was pleased as they could have been way worse






Now is it possible to remove the 2 screws that hold the butterfly? Looks like they were put in place then spread on the backside so they wouldn't vibrate out, I'd like to clean up the butterfly shaft and bearings.

Spa day for the head, RTW02 took it to work and put it through 2 cycles in an industrial ultrasonic cleaner. Came out real nice, may have to look into buying one.

Absolutely not, I regularly keep checking back to see your marvelous attention to detail.

Keep up the great work.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

I'm here too! Just mainly and watching.

You can remove those butterfly screws. Go over the smashed end of them with a die grinder and take off what you can then have a good screwdriver that fits well and muscle them out. I've done it on my CB750F. You can either reuse them if they're not damaged too badly or get some new ones from the hardware store. Use red loctite when reassembling.

Watching closely, as I do all your builds. Enjoying it immensely.

I have an UltraSonic cleaner. It's great.

So is my soda blaster.

This.. only a couple of the throttle bodies I've messed with had "mechanically locked" butterfly screws, but careful grinding should easily fix it if you don't hit the bore. It looks like you've done this before, but DONT FORGET the red loctite ...one of the first engines I fiddled with, I had a go-kart engine eat one and bust a valve seat and mess up the head pretty well. Very awesome.

The build is lookin good! I like seeing people who do their own paint/powdercoating. What do you think caused the coat to not take well to the one side cover? something in the casting or prepwork?

I have some odd grounding issues that noone seems to be able to solve which causes the powder to repel on second coats.

I am going by your way in early August, any must see or do in Salt Lake City?

weird on the grounding issue. I'm not too familiar with powda coating, but have you tried grinding a bit off somewhere inconspicuous to expose bare metal? or a screw that would be in its hole in the metal, and maintain a direct ground?

As for Happy Valley, there's quite a bit here! I live downtown, so I'm not very familiar with stuff in, say, Sandy... but I don't think there's much down there. Despite the totalitarian theocracy of sorts, the local breweries are some of the countries best, and there are dozens of great coffee houses. I can explain better and make specific eatery/drinkery recommendations if you PM me.

I strongly recommend hiking, rock climbing etc that can be had up the canyons around the valley. Since you're coming in August, there should still be the roadster, rat rod and classic car meets going on at Liberty Park on Sundays. If you're a bicyclist, SLC is pretty bike-friendly (save for the traffic) and there are some really fun routes. Many people have called SLC a bore, but they wouldn't know fun if it had clamps on their nipples. There's more if you want me to think it up later
