Small Update

Got the wheels changed out from mags to spokes. New Triple Tree, and clip-ons installed. I screwed up my seat cowl when I was added the clear coat, so instead of redoing the whole thing, I masked off a stripe down the center and reworked that section, making it darker since matching and blending would be impossible… Not digging it… Bike is at Ashton’s shop getting the Motogadget M-Unit installed. I’ll rework the tail section once I get it back… It’s a week long process, mostly just waiting for layers to cure… The black rear shocks don’t seem to be working for me anymore… Maybe it’s time for some Ohlins…

New Wheels on the CB

I thought the orange wheels might grow on me, and they did somewhat, but it was not enough to keep me from scouring Craigslist every week for a set of chrome wheels. As fate would have it, this nice set popped up and I snatched them up without hesitation.  Sure, it’s not as recognizable as the orange, but it looks much better to me like this…

It amazes me how much people appreciate this little bike. I rode it to the Handbuilt Show in Austin during MotoGP weekend, and it was surrounded by 5-6 figure bikes, and I got so many compliments…. people just respond to this thing…. Fun to ride too… Not gonna sink any more $$ into this one, I am happy the way it is… Let’s go ride…
