Okay guys... fair enough. Believe it or not I have been working on the little Honda. Most importantly I have been clearing the shelves off of unused and stale inventory via FleaBay and Craig's. I'm down to spending money on the bike and without heat in the shop it seemed the best time to cover that base. Good news is I have sold almost everything I have posted so Brutus will be getting some much needed tires, rims, spokes and brakes. I've decided in the few weeks of off-time that the bike will remain cafe'-ish but with a dual-sport twist. Can you say Heidenau K60 Scout tires? The little bastard is starting to look like a small bulldog with "little dog syndrome". I think the tires and some choice suspension work will make it a great street bike & gravel runner. I have also been working in the basement on the tins. WLW should like the treatment I gave to the OEM chain guard... lightning holes! Freakin' yeah! Hopefully by the end of this coming weekend I will have the tank, fenders, side-covers & chain guard ready for paint. I have been taking pics so I'll update this thread with photos and less talk Sunday evening. On another note I have dragged out an old friend. It is a tool that WLW won't be able to buy anywhere at any price but I almost guarantee he'd love to have one being the TW that he is. I'm currently doing a little reshaping on the surfaces and getting the beast ready for continued use and a photo-op. So for WayLong and others following this thread here's a riddle... what is this? I have never published a photo of it although it can be seen in the background of some other pics posted here on ADV. It has been in use in my shop for over 35 years. It weighs in at around 400 pounds and does not require electricity. It only has one moving part. It's original position was horizontal, it is now vertical. It can be used as a shop stool when not in use. Hammers welcome. Good luck on your guesses. There is no prize if you are correct but I would let you use it if you are ever in the 'hood. Thanks for checking in guys and keeping me on my toes.
