Het zitje ligt er nu nog gewoon los op liggen . Ik ga er twee schroeven met een bolle kop door zetten,en die vastzetten met een laagje polyesther. Dan kan ik gewoon langs onder twee moertjes opdraaien en staat het mooi vast. Ik heb er wel wat moeite mee gehad om het zo vlak passend te maken op het frame,maar het is toch redelijk goed gekomen. De reden dat ik het zo vlak mogelijk op het frame heb is dat de framebuizen zo veel mogelijk wil wegwerken zodat je ze niet ziet. De bekleding ga ik over de randen van het zitje trekken en dan gaan de framebuizen voor meer dan de helft uit het zicht komen. De tank zit inderdaad nog zeer mooi in de lak,maar t'is niet de kleur die ik wil dus... Vandaag trouwens een plaatje gemaakt om vooraan het zitje te zetten zodat het gat dat je aan de tank ziet weg is. Dat plaatje moet aan de tank gelast worden,en dan zal de lak toch om zeep zijn. Foto's volgen nog wel.

Here are some new pics from my cb 550 .
Yseterday i made a small plate that should be weld to the tank. I also have to make a small support to fix the tank to the frame because i can't reach the rubber anymore after the plate is fixed to the tank. When the plate is welded i wil make ik smooth whit some "plamuur" (i don't now the word for it in english,sorry Wink ) And today i started to strip the engine because i want the cilinders to be replaced with another one who isn't damaged like the one who is on the engine now. There are some cooling strips crashed, and that isn't nice.

Here are the pics.

So, i started to clean the engine parts. I sandblasted the cilinder and after that i painted in black with a heat resisted paint. After that was finished i sanded the cooling fins so now they are silver again. I like it like it is now. I hope to get the gasket kit soon ,so i can rebuild the engine . Here are some pics .

And after the sanding.

What is your opinion guys ? Leave it like this,or repainted it in black ?

The pistons came along with this cilinders and they look in great condition. Should i fit new piston rings ? The ex owner told me that the engine they came from has 16000KM .I wil hone the cilinders again yes.
Guys, sorry for my english,but i try to write it so everybody can understand it( at least a little bit Laughing )

At least honing the cylinders (just rough it up)

Running in the barley used piston rings.....

the cooling fins look great!
Just like my dad's CB 750...
I would hone the cilinders and place new rings, or at least measure them (by placing them in your cilinder )

I like where this project is going! Keep it up and keep us informed!

Today i made a support underneeth the tank with a bolt. Now i can screw the tank on te frame insteed of the rubber . And so i could close the tank . It fits verry well. Tomorrow i wil have the gasket kit for the engine,so i can rebuild it also. But first i need to paint some parts of it. I enjoy this project . i like it more and more and always get different idea's as i become further . Now i'm thinking about to paint the caferacer in black with white tank "honda"emblems . And on the side panels i will place the name of the bike " the ace of spades" and put the playing card there to. What you guys think ? All opinions are welcome, i can only learn from it . Here is what i have in mind.



And the idea for the side panels, with the text " ace of spades "

Very good thought there about the black tank and ace-cards on the side. I never seen much café with the card on the side panel. I do think the white emblems would be too much of a difference between tank and emblems. Maybe matt gold or matt silver. Then again you could paint the white in the cards silver or black gold....Just a opinion. Keep it going man

Today i was looking for some nice things to order for my bike. I find some verry cool stickers .
This one is for the top of the tank and the seat.



And this is coming on the left and the right side of the tank.



Of course the stickers wil be white,otherwise it would be pretty stupid when i order them in black. Laughing

And then the ace of spades .This wil come on the side panels, and at some smal parts just to make some accents.

I did motorhead away when i ordered the stickers.

Here. http://www.frogstyling.be/Asp/Stickers.asp And they send it to you,i order there before and it's always ok.
Open "catalogus" and scroll down,then you can open a pdf "flags & races" there are more nice stickers. You can order them in any size and colors you like.
