    I reached out to Steve today - a total stranger other than the connection of this forum. He did not disappoint - he helped me with a stubborn left-hand-side motor cover in 3 minutes.

    I've contributed if for no other reason than he's helped me out a lot - on this particular item...and on the many posts he has made of which I have gained knowledge.

    It WILL after all be my "to-do list.....and help us keep track of progress....

    Parts/components wanted will appear in red....
    Parts/components ordered/being fabricated will appear in blue.....
    Finished or received parts/components will appear in green....
    Once they are attached/installed on the bike, they will appear in purple....

    TURBOCHARGER.......(My thanks to the anonymous donor)...
    Single carb CD 175 head......(Thanks Lefty)(See PM about the 160 front hub)...
    Rebuild-able waste-gate actuator (so springs can be changed to get the desired low boost pressures)
    Rebuild-able "pop-off" valve (for the same reasons)

    Rebuild components for the CD 22mm carb...MUST also find a set of floats (non-brass-tank) that will take carb bowl pressurization)
    A CB200 tank would be nice....(heavier tank will take internal pressurization better without deforming)....
    ​Oil tank/cooler finned unit......
    Ecotrons electric oil pump.....
    12 V coolant pump....
    A variety of "cam-loc" fasteners and receptacles for attaching bodywork....(thanks Bud....)
    MB5 front wheel....
    A "Spare" set of CL 175 "sloper" engine cases would be nice to have....
    As would a "Spare" CD 175 "vertical" (single carb) Cylinder head.....
    A "spare" CB 175 camshaft would also be nice....Thanks Ray/CB2NR .....
    Bump.....

    Bummer, do you get to keep the rear wheel for free though?
    Could be of use?
