Hey guys, I've stalked this forum for a long time, but never posted anything. You've been super helpful with my 1981 CM400 street tracker build, so I figured I'd share.

The previous owner had tried to make a bobber out of it. The seat was just a vinyl wrapped piece of plywood, the gas tank had a huge dent in the right side, and the engine was on its last leg. Luckily a coworker of mine had a 1980 model without a title to sell for parts. I transplanted the engine, guage, headlight, and replaced the leaky air assisted forks for the standard forks on the '80.

Next came the body work. Got a saddlemen tailsection and fixed the tank up with some bondo. After some spray paint, it was looking good.

Here are the latest pictures I have. Most recent additions were the rear shocks and 2-1 exhaust.

I really appreciate all the help and advice you guys have given me, even though you didnt know it.

Nice work you've done reversing the "efforts" of the PO. I'm not much of a café fan but the bike looks nice.

BTW, did you check your hot water heater serial number against the recent AO Smith recall? I have one and mine was built just before the series that the recall applies to... do a Google search for the serial number list to check it out, could avoid burning your house down
