Is it something I can fix? Super fine sandpaper?
Thanks ancientdad, good info! I spoke with 66Sprint yesterday and it sounds like Honda went through quite a few versions of the front end on these bikes, which makes it tough to find an exact match in good condition. I'd like to avoid the inevitable zipper effect when you start swapping out parts!Actually, the lower triple (steering stem) is the same but the upper (top bridge) would need to match the later fork tubes. Since it's a CL and you have a drum brake on the front, you'd either want to look for a later CL front end like a K5 or K6 with the pinch-type top bridge, or convert your CL to a CB disc brake front end but that might require other changes
