Well, I'm out of time on the long travel CB suspension. I did myself in by not jumping on the project a little quicker when the forks arrived. By the time I had my plan together I stalled waiting for parts that were needed to finish some of the fab work. It'd take the next two nights working late just to get it all togehter and I'm not about to race without testing the new setup.
So I'll be running the stock forks and I ordered some stock replacements for the totally busted rear shocks. Those should arrive tomorrow.
I'll finish the fork swap when I get back and can do it without cutting corners.
The steering stop turned out nice and I like the 21" front wheel for sure.
I like the sailah steering stop and the black wheel! Is that the krylon touch or plasti-dip?
Good luck on the race tomorrow, be safe/go fast.
How many deer have you hit total now? ..while on a motorcycle?
Thx. It's Rust-Oleum satin canyon black. I can put a tire on it with out it scratching after 2 days of drying so it works for me. The touch-ups blend rally well too of it does get boogered.
I've hit two deer. Or two deer have hit me....
Once on a RoadStar XV1700 Warrior. Once on a 450 XC-W.
Pristine, baked-on, WV clay patina after 400 miles of RallyMoto. If a muddy "street' bike makes you squeamish look away.
Ride report will follow when I get home.

Last chance to vote for the Scrambler as Build of the Month. Voting ends today.
Wish I read it a couple days ago, my vote was yours!
Waiting on parts for my 750f/ss now, chomping at the bit!
Found Cone Engineering for my exhaust pieces, amazing stuff available!
Here's the tarmac stage video for those who wonder if the knobby tires grip on pavement.

My favorite stage of the race. 10mpg but 100 smiles per mile!

Here's the gps data.
Been following your build thread....and watched some of your video stages. On with the RR, will ya! :ddog
Cool build did you fit rear blinkers as in the photo you can only see the front ones.
The rear light has integrated blinkers. Small but effective.
I'm looking all over here for a maintenance book I can download for an 82 cb750f/ss, you wouldn't know where one is would you?
Thanks for any info, love your bike btw.
Check out cb750c.com! They have a wealth of knowledge on the DOHC 4s of the era. You'll probably have to create an account.
Not sure if this link to the haynes manual still works. (can't view it from work)
How's the build going?
Due to the money drying up...My attempts down this road have been slowed to a halt, that being said I can still live vicariously through this thread and ride the old bike until the street tires are all used up..then I guess I will be forced to get some off road tires for it bahahahahah
After a few spring shakedown rides I'd say that this thing is maybe more fun to blast gravel on than I remembered.
The pair of shinkos I have on it are about $80....cheap ticket to thrills win you get some cash to spare!
