    Here's my '87 so far...



    Only things left to do: figure out what to paint, find some k&n filters, and maybe some street tires?



    Any other ideas?

    whatever you do, keep that tank as is. i love the old big TW logo tanks, and the white/blue looks great.

    2nd wheelie's comments. I'd find a way to make your new paint idea to include leaving the tank stock. Nice job.

    Lose the helmet lock--it detracts from the clean look of the bike. Other than that, looking good!



    Paint the frame dark blue, chrome the fender, tank, and other bits, and put the stock stickers back on the tank. Old school drag bars would be trick.



    Back in the olden days we nickel-plated frames and swingarms. Nickel protects from corrosion but won't hide cracks. Nickel is cheaper than chrome.



    I'd put something between the passenger peg and chain if I ever planned to use that peg. better yet, lose the passenger pegs.

    That's awesome! Got any details on the parts you've used to far? For instance, did you fabricate that swingarm or is that a Japanese part?

    Most of the after market parts are from Japan through Motoshop Z. See here for more information about ordering from them: http://www.honda50.com/?page_id=162



    Anyway, the parts from Japan are:



    Extended swing arm

    Headlight bracket

    Brake light

    Front Fender

    Small battery/tray

    Supertrapp exhaust



    The rest of the stuff I've done locally:



    Ebay 4.5in Bates style headlight

    Drag Specialties Speedo

    Mirror

    Re-upholstered seat

    Chain/Sprockets
