    Yeah wish I could be in the garage everyday I'm living in an apartment and has a 30 minute drive to my dads garage. So it mostly becomes a weekend thing. I suspect my miss won't be to pleased if I run off to the garage every day of the week..

    Welded my clutch cover which had a hole in it and also two cracks by one of the mounting holes.
    Came out decent I think, my first time welding aluminium in 7 years so I'm quite pleased.

    ...And finally laid down the paint! Stoked right now. Went with Alfa Romeo Verde Caraibi since the paint guy could
    not find the mixing formula for the chevy color.

    Bike is coming out great. I have a Honda 750 that was a similar color so I love this color you went with!

    Thanks! Small things happening. Finishing up my sissy so that I can have it chromed.
    Decided to ditch the owl-rearlight for now, found an old Triumph light that I will use first, I think it will ease up the inspection. Will eventually cast the owl anyway.
    Drew an engine mount that I've hade laser cut in stainless. Looking for white/black braided ignition cable stock but having trouble finding it. Colored ones I find everywhere but not the white/black.

    Coming along nicely.

    And I agree with Cyclefreak about the sissy bar.

    Attached my rear wheel and chain and little did I know that my rear wheel is from a 750. Main reason I attached it was because I wanted to check clearance between chain and fender, which is about 5 mm (1/5"). Thought that i looked way beefy for a 500 but I was thinking that the big tyre was fooling me. Compared photos and it is a 750 wheel.
    Looks like I will be needing an offset front sprocket. They're just so damn expensive, but I have new original sprocket and an old one, perhaps I can make it work with a bit of lathe- and welding magic.

    Thanks man, I appreciate it.

    Anyways I was wrong about my rear wheel. It is a 500 wheel. Attached it ti the bike today and the sprockets lined up. Took of the rear sprocket and measured it so now I've confirmed it to be from a 500. Feels good to be wrong!

    Rest of the day I spent making a headlight bracket.

    Everything is so tasteful and clean on this bike. Making me want to go out and start my own CB build!

    Thanks!

    Slow progress today. Put in a new seal beam in my headlight bucket. Looks much more slick than the old one.
    Also put on a new rear sprocket and chain + brake shoes. Painted my lower triple in silver but no pics of it.

    Built a polishing machine this weekend. Gotta say I really enjoy it! Polished the forks and rear brake drum/shield so far.
