    I'm edging towards a Blue paint job. Gotta scrape together the coin for it. Don't think anyone but a Honda fan will notice the front end swap. Most folks don't even know what a CM200 T looks like!

    Few things I feel are worth mentioning. Biggest issue with mounting the front end, the steering stop. It needed to be removed from the CM's front tube. Cut it off flush, then using a dremel tool, rounded and made it flush. Haven't come up with putting on new steering stops and yes they could be needed. If you're going to do a rewire, don't cut anything on the replacement harness until after it's put on the bike and the rewire work starts. A few wires can be combined, mostly grounds; kill switch, rear lights moving it deeper into the harness. Hot wires run single line, no combining, most are now have fuses. A few wiring diagrams were used 80, 81, CM, 85-87, 96-09 CMX. All Came in handy when mixing old and new to make one harness. Rebels safety diode will fit out of the way under the gas tank. Left uncovered if replacement is ever needed.
