    I'd be all over that bike. I love 550 -4's but mainly that paint scheme. that is one sweet bike and the fairing is pretty sweet too. that is a real find in my book and looking forward to seeing it done.

    Did not know about o-ring chain rubbing, basically in my experience modern chains are stronger, rust and stretch less with minimal care. No matter how good old ones look.

    Dune - what did you wind up doing with the parts you took off? I've got a '75 CB550, same color and all, and I have been looking for luggage to add. If you still have the rack and bags, I'd be interested in buying them. Or at least seeing how they attach to the bike and try to fabricate my own.

    Thanks - JD
