Managed to catch up on the 450 Project Log a bit - not completey, though, still have the seat and some overall photos to do.

That's a great looking website, and the bike is even better!! The paint looks really nice too. Good work! ;)

Like I noted, the Egyptians built the pyramids with a plumb line and a level, and the Wright Brothers built machines that freakin' flew !!
If it was good enough for Ramses and Wilbur and Orville......

It's a good way to do it if the engine is out of the frame.

Just checked it out. Those side covers and emblems are the best I've seen! Better than Honda did it back then! Very cool.

It's funny how similar our builds are, yet yours is going WAY FASTER! :lol: ;)
Pssst, what width of rear tire are you running?

Are you kidding, I've been working on this thing for a year now, just plonking away as money becomes available.

Tires are Cheng Shin Barracudas (matched front/rear)
Front tire is 100/90/19, rear is 110/90/18 (stock CB450 swingarm).
But remember, these are CB400T wheels - the tires were a beeyutch to get on those Comstars, too.
Same tires I put on wifey's CB200 - I'm pleased with them.
