It's aliiive!

"We can do it. We have the technology. We can build it better than it was before..."

Well there it is. Aside from polishing the engine, it's DONE! Everything we've done:
  • De-rusted and painted frame
  • De-rusted and painted bracketry (airbox, battery tray, taillight assembly)
  • Added blanking plate to close up ugly taillight opening
  • Replaced shocks and forks
  • Painted and modified CB100 side covers to fit this CL100
  • De-rusted and painted tank
  • Painted exhaust and polished heat shield
  • De-rusted and polished fenders and chain guard
  • Recovered seat
  • Cleaned the carb
  • Lubed and adjusted all operating cables
  • Replaced front tire
  • Added turn signals, including XOR relays for front running lights and rear triple brake lights.
  • Added 7.5V Zener diode to help prevent overcharging the battery
  • Replaced rubber centerstand stop to keep the chain (!) from hitting it
  • Helicoiled stripped mirror mount and added mirrors
  • Added a proper Honda tool kit to hidden compartment
I took it for a little spin to cure the paint we put on the exhaust, and it's such a ton of fun to ride! I think Lemontree's going to love it! :)
