    Very nice build. Certainly a testament to your mechanical abilities.
    Beautifully done.

    Thanks...it was a labor of love. Every time I take a look at it, I am taken back to the days of my youth.

    The 'wing, eh.......maybe a subject for another build thread on down the road.:wink:

    Man do I wish I'd had one of these instead of the 400 twin I had, maybe that damn bus wouldn't have pulled out in front of me damn near killing me!

    Obviously I'd have been much further down the road on this!:evil:evil

    BEAUTIFUL JOB!! I live the old Hondas, just starting on my 82 cb750f/ss, can't wait!

    Wow Charlie, I am late to the party here but that CB/RS replica bike. I just passed through Idaho 2 weeks ago and if I would have seen this thread before that I would have stopped to check out your cool sounding shop.

    I LOVE replica bikes of the 60's era racers. I have a 1965 Yami YM1 that I am building into a TD2 replica bike. Not quite as accurately as your bike is, but MY version of a street legal TD2.

    Great stuff and great quality in your build Charlie !!! :clap

    Well, just happened to notice these last couple of posts on the thread, sorry about that. Here's a clip of me firing up the bike inside the shop.
