Hello Guys, been a frequent viewer of Honda Twins for the past 3 years and just wanted to take a little time to show the community what I have been working on. I really wanted to go for a cafe style build but thinking more about it I figured Id try and go for the most original, factory build I could (minus a few oem parts etc). I still have some minor things to work on getting tuned in, (belt strap on the seat needs to be redone) but as far as the gas tank and side covers go, its all original paint and side covers. Really happy after 3 years with how far I've come on this bike, sense its my first actual motorcycle ever, and my first bike i had wrenched on. Couldnt have done it without some big help from frogman and 76twin, and a few others that had helped along the way. Now I just need to find some cafe riders in the Ohio area to roll around town with.

Looks nice, good job for a first-timer. While you're polishing up the engine parts, take some time to do the rear brake backing plate too - it's amazing how small stuff like that goes a long way (and distracts from the little things that most then won't notice anymore) :D Nice original paint too

Thanks! Yeah that rear brake backing plate is pretty ugly ( alot worse in person), might have to do that this winter! would love to do the rims and replace rusted bolts, nuts and washers around the bike as well.
