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.

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.

The CB200 has 31mm forks, and since you guys are on this topic, does anyone run the disk brake setup from the 200 as well.
