so some of you may know im helping a guy i met at midohio build a cb350 racer to run with us. were hoping to have it done for vir. heres a few pics of the beginings of the project. the front end is mocked up, and ready to go. its cb750f with gt550 forks, and gt brake with a cb350 stem. the steering damper bracket we also made this weekend and attached that. the frame is pretty much detabbed and shaved. yeah, we got a ways to go, but its getting there! drum brake heads to buchanons this week, it went back to the blaster today, and next week we'll have it welded up then start reassembly. the motor is ripped down and ready t be reassembled. more updates as things get photod

I need one too, but I was going to make my own. How hard could it be, really? I'll post pics if I ever get off my ass & do it (yes I realize I'm breaking my own pic teasing rule,).
