I've seen it done on other forums where a guy will post progress pics of a project. Others follow along and give him words of encouragement. These encouraging words inspire him to get off his lazy ass, bundle up in his carhartt's, and bravely trundle over to his unheated shop space in the dead of an Ohio winter to work (and, dare I say, to dream)…

So here's what I got so far:

Mock up:

160 triple trees are also now off to have the 160 stem removed and pressed into a set of 350 trees. Thanks for the advice on that one.

Let me know what you think and call me gay if I stop posting updates.

Honda go sideways!

Very cool start. I like the looks of the tank, too. The tires and rims really make it look racy. Texy wants a set just like them for Summit Point.
Keep after it, race season is just around the corner for some of you.


Vintage racing - old guys on old bikes
Hey Eric,
It is looking good. When are you going to race it?
I noticed that Rice Paddy had a couple of FZ600 fairing pieces on Sat night but I didn't want t carry them around with me. I never go a chance to go back Sunday. If you get a chance can you find out what if anything they have. They were pretty beat up but I am just looking for race part. I don't need uppers, just middle and lowers.
